Theme: The Influence of Salt and Light
We are called to be salt and light in our world, and it is foundational to who we are. The purpose of this call is for us to make an impact on the world, on society, and on the culture around us through our influence. That impact is to be as significant as the impact of salt and light. We are slow down corruption and illuminate or manifest the truth and the life of God. This call points us to a way that gives our world, our society, and our culture a brief experience of who Christ is so they will want more and seek more of Christ.
“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. 14) “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15) No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16) In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Matthew 5:13-16, NLT
