“You are the salt of the earth…you are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden…let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
HOW ARE WE LIKE SALT?
In Biblical times, salt was used to season, preserve, and purify. Without refrigeration, salt was the only way to keep meat from rotting. As followers of Jesus, we are called to be in close contact with the world because is working through us to preserve the world.
HOW ARE WE LIKE LIGHT?
A shining light is both revealing and inviting. To those in the dark, it shows the way back home and welcomes their return. Together as a community, New Life Student Ministries is committed to being a light in our families, our schools, the central coast, and our world.
WHAT IS THE SALT & LIGHT CHALLENGE?
Its a commitment to:
Pray regularly for 5 non-Christian friends. Pray that God would open their hearts, that He would give obvious ways for you to serve them, that they would feel comfortable & safe to ask questions.
Serve them in practical ways. Look for ways you can put others first and be helpful.
Speak up when the time is right. Share the right thing. You can invite a friend to a Sunday service, tell them why and how you became a Christian, or share what it means to know Jesus. Taking about God can be scary for just about all of us! However, when we commit to praying and serving, God will “show up” and tell us what we need to say.
