Matthew 5:13

The Sermon on the Mount:

Ye Are the Salt of the Earth

Life B-P Church Worship I & II, 20th August 2017

Text: Matthew 5:13

Why are we not as impactful for Christ as we should be?

·         Reluctance to go beyond our comfort zone?

·         The fear that people will be offended by our Christian influence?

 

Lessons on being impactful from Matthew 5:13:

1.    We Have the Potential to Make a Good Impact on Others

·         Salt is used as a seasoning for food.

·         Christ gives us the saltiness we need, to make an impact on others.

 

2.    We Need to Go into the World to Make a Good Impact on Others

·         God has given us the unique role of being the salt of the earth.

·         Salt makes people thirst for water (cf. John 7:37).

·         Salt acts as a preservative against decay and infection.

·         It doesn’t take much salt to bring out its full effects.

 

3.    False Christians Cannot Make a Good Impact on Others

·         When something that is supposed to be salt is not salty, it is just white sand (cf. 2 Timothy 3:5).

·         Are you useful salt or useless sand?

 

Questions for Personal Reflection:

1.         In which places can you have the greatest impact for Christ on others?

2.         Why do many Christians make little effort to share the Gospel with others?

3.         How can you overcome the pressure to conform to the attitudes and values of the non-Christian world?
