Salt and Light of the World - Matt 5:13-16
Written by John Tsang   
Thursday, 03 May 2018 12:02

 

In order to be salt and light of the world, we are called to:

1. Go in to places where there is no light.

2. Stand out and be different.

3. Bless and give gifts to those around us.

 

Steve shared three stories of Christians who attempted to be salt and light of the world.

 

1. Barronelle Stutzman, a florist in Richland, WA who chose not to provide flowers for a same gender wedding. Stutzman had previously sold the couple flowers and knew that they were gay. However, Stutzman informed them that she could not provide flowers for their wedding because same-sex marriage was incompatible with her Christian beliefs. Stutzman’s stance (along with others who took a similar course of action) resulted in the courts.

Beatitudes - How Can I Be Blessed? Matt 5:1-12
Written by John Tsang

The Sermon on the Mount (SoM) is a well-loved and perhaps the important portion of Jesus’ teaching. It is clear and simple yet profound and rich. The central theme of the Sermon on the Mount is the values and nature of the Kingdom of Heaven and the discipleship (or way of life) of its citizens. It is in the SoM that we find beautiful passages like the Beatitudes, the Lord’s Prayer, treasures in heaven, and a series of choices at the end that invites us to choose to follow Christ.

Childlike Humility - Matt 18:1-4
Written by John Tsang

We are familiar with cultural humility; the kind of outward humbleness that is expected and the proper thing to do in public settings. But as our speaker Dr. Ge alluded to this Sunday, we have all felt the pride, arrogance, and self-sufficiency internally while we put on a humble front. What is Childlike humility and why is it so important in the kingdom of God?

 

In Matt 17, Jesus predicted his death for a second time. Then shortly after, we find the disciples asking Jesus who will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus replied with this simple object lesson in Matt 18:1-4.

 

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
