Victory vitamin Blog – Matthew 5:13-14

“You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”

– Matthew 5:13-14 NIV

This Sunday’s message is the first in a four-part series titled “Becoming a Contagious Christian”.  The goal of the message is to equip us to be comfortable in our identity in Christ.  We are dearly loved, forgiven children of God!  By embracing this identity, and striving to live our lives as God’s children, we can attract others who desire the same confidence and peace that we have.  This week we’re focusing on contagious authenticity.  There’s something very attractive about the person who knows who they are, and is confident in their identity.  Jesus says that His followers are “the salt of the earth”.  That phrase is often used to describe people of a certain disposition.  One encyclopedia describes a person who is “the salt of the earth”, as being “decent, dependable, and unpretentious”.  Certainly there is more to being a follower of Jesus than this, but it’s not a bad start.  As children of God, we’ve experienced His love and care.  We are forgiven through faith in Christ, so we are uniquely positioned to do the same to give love, care, and forgiveness to others.  We are comfortable and confident as God’s children, and not afraid to live lives that display, love, care, generosity reliability, and humility.  You are a dearly loved, forgiven child of God!  Be confident and comfortable with your identity in Christ!
