You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and tramples underfoot (Matthew 5:13)

You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.

Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.

Just so, your light must shine before  others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father (Matthew 5:13-16).

The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened (Matthew 5:33).

Again the kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea, which collects fish of every kind. When it is full they haul it ashore and sit down to put what is good into buckets. What is bad they throw away.(Matthew 5:47-48)

VARIOUS ROLES and MISSION OF CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES:

  1. Salt of the Earth    =        as Preservative and Flavoring
  2. Light of the World =        as Model and Beacon
  3. Leaven of Society  =        as Influence and Facilitator
  4. Net of Mankind              =        as Instrument of Salvation

QUESTION:

HOW DO WE FULFILL THIS ROLE AND MISSION?

ANSWER:

–          BE PURPOSE- DRIVEN PERSONS!

–          BE PURPOSE- DRIVEN COMMUNITIES!

–          BE COMMITTED TO A PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS!

–          BE SPIRIT FILLED AND BE A STAR!
