In this message, we’ll reflect upon the responsibility of disciples to be salt and light—preservers of what is holy and beacons of what is good. We are not just called to be “respectable people,” but witnesses to the Kingdom of God. Matthew 5:13-16 NRSV 13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, 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 in heaven.
