This Is You

In His sermon on the mount, Jesus calls His followers to be salt and light to people (Matthew 5:13-16).  In today’s teaching, Pastor Steve Shober outlines the various attributes of salt and light and explains how they apply to us as followers of Jesus. He then challenges each of us to self-examination: How does my life affect others through my words and actions? Do my words enhance the lives of others (Matthew 5:13, Galatians 4:6)? Am I careful to watch my words (Mark 9:50)? Does my light shine in a dark world (Matthew 5:14-16, Ephesians 5:8-9)?  Do I take advantage of opportunities to be salt and light to others (Galatians 6:10)? Am I on the lookout for new experiences with God that will glorify Him (Matthew 5:16)?
