Matthew 5:14 - 5:16

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this talk, Steve Gregg continues his study of the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5, focusing on verses 14-16. He explains that as Christians, we are the light of the world and are called to be salt to preserve and impact the spiritual and moral conditions of the earth. Gregg emphasizes that being a light is not just about sharing information, but living a life that challenges the assumptions of the world and reflects the teachings of Jesus. He laments the lack of success in the church's efforts to live as an alternative society and urges believers to strive to be a community that the world will take notice of.
