The Marks of a Disciple

9.13.20 - Salt and Light! (Matthew 5:13-16)

Matthew 5:13-16 functions as the effect of Matthew 5:3-12, the Beatitudes. When God's people live with Jesus as King in gospel community--mourning over personal sin and the effects of a fallen world, exercising humility and mercy, hungering and thirsting together for righteousness, and seeking to make peace between a holy God and sinners--they will inevitably function as salt and light in the world. God intends for the gospel to be served up by a set-apart people. That is the whole point of this passage! Lord, help us to shine for you in this very dark world.
