Let There Be Your Light  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 5: 13–20
Matthew 5: 13–16 for LFM
Summary: A ceremony sometimes used as part of the baptismal service helps highlight the fact that Christians are the light of the world because they have received the light of Christ. But it is really the light of the world only if it isn’t hidden, only if it’s allowed to shine. We do that through our witness to what God has done in Christ, through our actions and our words.

Me? Useful?  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 5: 13–20
Matthew 5: 13–16 for LFM
Summary: Among the many voices that tell us who we are, Jesus comes today to say we are “salt” and “light.” Though we are understandably skeptical, Jesus is saying something important about our usefulness — not as something we need to become, but as something we followers already are, indelibly.

Salt to Taste  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 5: 13–20
Summary: When Jesus speaks of salt and light, he is not telling us what we need to become so much as he is reminding us what we already are. The questions is how willing we are to be what we have been empowered to be by the way God has created us. We can point to people who have enhanced the world around us. Some of them are famous. Most of them are known as salt or light only to the handful of people they have touched. Our invitation is not to simply be impressed by them but to follow their lead and be what we already are.

Summary: “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain’s question of God has been answered affirmatively by Christians for 2,000 years. God’s challenge to Cain to care for his brother is renewed by Jesus, who asked us to be salt and light to our world. We need to do God’s work by assisting others.

Super Righteousness  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 5: 13–20
Matthew 5: 13–16 for LFM
Summary: Being more righteous than the scribes and Pharisees is not easy. It’s not a matter of fulfilling the law perfectly by ourselves, in desire as well as act, because we can never do that. But as those called to be Jesus’ disciples, we have his perfect righteousness. We continue to need the law, but not as a way to save ourselves. And as those who have the righteousness of Christ, we are to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
