Bible Study – Salt and Light


  • Salt and light are very important to life. We would have no light on this earth without the sun. Also salt or sodium is an important part of a healthy diet. Now too much sodium can become a problem, just like if the earth was any closer to the sun we would have no life on this planet. We must trust in God’s design and order. 
  • In the Scriptures, we are given clear instructions on how to be the salt and light of the earth as believers individually and collectively as the church. 
  • Mark 9:50
  • Luke 14:34
  • When something lacks salt it loses its taste.
    • Psalm 119:9
  • We are also the light of the earth. We are to let the light of Jesus shine through us.
    • Romans 6:10-11
    • 1 John 1:6
  • Revelation 21:2 – contrary to modern-day dispensationalism, the New Jerusalem is not a place, but rather a people.
    • the New Jerusalem must be a way to symbolically represent the church triumphant. 
    • Romans 8:14
    • Romans 8:22
