Lightly Seasoned (Matthew 5:13-16)Chris Band, January 20, 2019
Part of the Sermon on the mount series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We are to be salt and light in the world, to give flavour and illumination to the world and to make a difference.
To be distinctive and visible as a community in the world.
Salt is the enemy of decay, prevents corruption, is antiseptic, purifies, cures etc etc. And we are called to be salt in the world.
We may have lost our distinctiveness. We have many similarities with non-Christians, but we are forgiven and our brokenness is being restored. We are in a relationship with the holy, loving God.
We shine out as Christians as we speak out the Word of God.
Salt in a morally decaying world; light in a spiritually dark world.

Matthew 5:13–16 (Listen)
13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
