a kingdom of speaking and doing | Matthew 5.11-16
patterns we conform to…


followers of King Jesus persevere in the face of persecution as salty witnesses and bright lights for Jesus because great is our reward in heaven


  • persecuted like previous prophets (5.11-12)


admit it’s hard
willing to be weird
prepared for persecution


  • salty speakers (5.13)


salty partners


salty books
salty moments


  • shining lights (5.14-16)


shining is faithfulness not flashiness


shining so that God shines more
