SERMON: November 12th, 2017 “You are the Salt of the Earth – You are the Light of the World”
Pastor Dave challenged us today with the question, “Are you going to humble yourself enough to be used, are you going to humble yourself to worship, are you going to humble yourself to hear what God has to day today?” We have to humble ourselves to have the right soul and spirit to glorify our Father in heaven. Everything we do, say and think is to glorify Him. John Stott said “We should not ask, ‘What is wrong with the world?’ for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather we should ask, “What has happened to salt and light?” We are not going to be the salt just by saying we will be the salt, we have to do it! God wants us to be what He calls us to be. “We are called to make a difference, but sadly that calling has gone largely unfulfilled. Put simply, the church has lost its influence on Society especially in the western world. There are many reasons why this is so, but one reason stands out far above the rest. The church has lost its influence because Christians have neglected their call – their call to be salt – their call to be light”.
