"By This All People Will Know That You Are My Disciples…"

Paul Earnhart on Matthew 5:13-16:

One final thought.   As important as it is for Christians to worship God according to His will, we must remember that most lost men will not be made to glorify God because we eat the Lord’s Supper every Sunday.   They may indeed be moved to exalt God by the quiet love with which we bear one another (John 13:34-35), by our self-control in the face of great provocation, by our calm assurance in the presence of tragedy, and our firm refusal to be drawn into a world of mindless lusts.   If we have gained the victory over a worldly system of pride and carnality (1 John 2:15-17; 5:4) it will surely show, and God, not ourselves, will be glorified.

Your corner of the world needs salt and light today.   Season and shine, wherever you are, to God’s glory.   The impact on others just might echo in eternity.
