Salt is an essential element of life. Our bodies cannot live without it. Neither can spiritual life be found outside of the gospel. When we are salt, the gospel is presented and life flows from the gospel into the hearer. Jesus says His disciples are the salt of the earth. Salt to bring flavour to the life of others. Salt preserves goodness that essential in society. Salt to bring life and sustains life.
Light cannot be hidden in darkness, because it IS light. Light dispels darkness. You are the light of the world and the purpose of light is to shine. Our presence in the world cannot be hidden. The world is so spiritually dark that one little light will stand out.
Pastor John continues his series on the Teachings of Jesus, helping us understand what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
