  2. Matthew 5:13 – 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.

  3. Matthew 5:14-16 – 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. (NLT)

  4. Roman Governor (c. AD 150): “The Christians are distinguished from other men neither by country nor language nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own nor employ a peculiar form of speech nor lead a life which is marked out by a singularity . . . They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others and yet endure all things as if foreigners.

  5. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and the land of their birth as a land of strangers . . . They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws of the land and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives.

  6. They love all men and are persecuted by all . . . They are poor yet make many rich . . . To sum up in a word: What the soul is to the body that is a Christian in the world.

  10. This Little Light of Mine This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine . . . Hide it under a bushel? No! . . .

  11. Matthew 5:14-16– 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 [light]shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. (NLT)

  12. 3 Important Points about Light • You are the Light of the world. 3 Stages 1) Jesus is the Light Matthew 4:16 – The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined.

  13. 2) We Walk in the Light John 8:12 – I am the light of the world. If you follow Me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.

  14. John 8:12 – I am the light of the world. If you follow Me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.

  15. 3) Be a Light Acts 26:18 – To open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God's people, who are set apart by faith in Me.

  16. Your Light Needs to be Seen 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. • Think about it: • Darkness =the absence of light • Evil =the absence of God • Evil = darkness • God = light

  17. Romans 13:11-12a – Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near.

  18. 12b Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. (NASB)

  19. Your Light Draws Others to Jesus Matthew 5:16 –Let your light [good deeds] shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (NASB)

  20. Will you Light your World?

  21. Light Your World by Newsong Two doors down one rocking chair is rocking; She sits there all alone, her husband dead and gone. The best years of her life they spent together; He was always strong, but now she’s on her own. And the telephone never rings No one laughs, no one sings It’s quiet there; does anybody care?

  22. A knocking at her door breaks the silence; She looks out to see a little boy from down the street. She cracks the door, surprised that he came over; Flowers in his hand, like a little gentleman. He said, “I picked these just for you; I hope you like the color blue. Could I stay awhile? I love to see you smile.”

  23. Light your world; Let the love of God shine through In the little things you do, Light your world. And though your light may be Reaching only two or three; Light your world!

  24. “Let this be said of us today: ‘They praised God because of me.’"
