PP041 This Little Light of Mine

When Christ calls us to be his salt and light to the world, he’s calling us to do this together. Don’t let the seeming insignificance of your little light paralyze you from being faithful in the ordinary good works the Lord has given you to do. We are to be individual and communal, radical and ordinary. Our Father providentially takes our ordinary service and adds it to that of all his people to produce a global net effect to his glory.

Scriptures Referenced: Mat 5:13-16

PP040 Salt AND Light Christians

As Christians we are prone to veering into ditches. We focus on befriending the lost, but end up losing our Christian distinctiveness. So we start pursuing personal holiness, but in doing so cut off contact with the world. In his sermon on the mountain, Jesus lines our path with two rumble strips: (1) you are the salt of the earth, and (2) you are the light of the world. Together these rumble strips corral us into the radical centre–we are to be utterly separate, in close proximity to the world.


Scriptures Referenced: Mat 5:13-15; Joh 1:5, 8:12; Titus 2:14
