'"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. ' Matthew 5:14

In Matthew 5:13-16 we find that Christians are two things: salt and light. We know that salt is a preservative meant to keep rot and decay away. That is exactly the Christian's job as a follower of Christ. The salt is to keep society and culture from plunging headlong into decay. This is only accomplished by Christians looking different than the world and staying true to Scripture, yet when Christians do not act differently they become worthless, good for nothing but to be trampled on. While the salt is negative, the light is positive. Christians are light and therefore we spread the gospel. We don't just seek to change society outwardly, but we also seek the inward change. So do you look different from the world? As different as salt and decay, as light and darkness? We will ask ourselves these questions as we study salt and light this week. Hope to see everyone there!
