KINGDOM OF GRACE #2
“Salt and Light”
Matthew 5:13-16 / May 12, 2019


YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH (vs. 13-14)

o Don’t lose saltiness and don’t be too salty (Job 6:6, Luke 14:33, Colossians 4:5&6)
o Flavor your world (Matthew 5:3-12, James 3:10&11)


YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (vs. 15-16) 

o Let there be light (Genesis 1:3; John 1:4&5, 8:12)
o Let it shine (Philippians 2:14&15, Matthew 6:2, Ephesians 2:10, Hebrews 10:24)


PRAYER REQUESTS
Pray for the glory of God shine through the people of Eastview in the upcoming serve project.  Pray that people will find “the light of the world” in Jesus through our good works.
Pray for God to move mightily through the presence of each Fearless Christ follower at Eastview to bring a distinct flavor to their respective worlds.  Pray that God will use your life as a witness this week simply by being “salt of the earth”. 
Continue to pray for those who do not know Jesus as their Savior and Lord yet.  Pray that God will draw them to Jesus.
Pray for our college graduates (by name if you know one specifically) that the faith they have will continue to be salt and light in the next part of their journey.
Thank God for you mom today.  Though she is not perfect, most of us have been flavored and guided by this woman.  Tell God thanks.  Tell her thanks.
