How you can be salt and light to the world

One Saturday night awhile back, I was discussing with my wife Deb a sermon I was getting ready to preach the next day about having a burden to share the Gospel with others. And as we spoke, I came to realize that much of the church today has become very laid back about their witness. They don’t want to offend and they don’t want to run anyone off.

Tell your world about Him!

When you and I look at the New Testament, we see that every person who came to Christ came openly and publicly. There were no secret disciples – each person who followed Christ took up his or her cross and followed Jesus openly. In fact, public confession of the Lord Jesus is one of those “things that belong to salvation,” (Hebrews 6:9). Confessing Christ simply goes hand in hand with salvation.
