CAMPFIRE STORIES WEEK 8

CAMPFIRE STORIES | SALT & LIGHT

WHEN YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, YOU’LL KNOW WHAT TO DO.

It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Luke 5:31b-32

Know who you are—know what to do!

YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH AND THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. Matt 5:13

WHAT DOES SALT DO?

• SALT PRESERVES. (Eternal life)
• SALT PURIFIES. (Impure world—agent of purification)
• SALT CREATES THIRST. (I want what you have)
• SALT MELTS. (Heart is hard—melt it with the love of X)
• SALT HEALS. (Hurt by people/religion—healed by X)

14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matt 5:14-16

I am—salt of the earth—light of the world.

I am a Christ empowered influencer. My life will make a difference.

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE.

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Acts 16:25

26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” Acts 16:26-28

YOUR SALT AND LIGHT LIVING CHANGES LIVES.

29 The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved — you and your household.” Acts 16:29-31

32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34 The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God — he and his whole family. Acts 16:32-34

FOUND people, FIND people.
