The Lord Jesus urged His disciples to be salt and light.
Spending Time with Others
This Lesson's Scripture: Acts 9:19b-31 and Mark 2:1-12
In his commentary on the Sermon on the Mount, John Stott reminds his readers that if Matthew 5:3-12 (the Beatitudes) is about a Christian’s character, then Matthew 5:13-16 is about a Christian’s influence in this world. I have always loved the words of Matthew 5:13-16, which describe Christian influence as salt and light. These words of Jesus point us toward the right balance of inward piety and outward action.
The Kingdom must be lived and proclaimed.
Here's a spring challenge for you.
