Matthew 5:13-16 English Standard Version (ESV) 

Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.



Definition

God is guiding my life through the truths revealed in Scripture. I hear from God, and I have a growing awareness of what His Word says and what it means. 

Memory Verse

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2

Get Started: As part of your Daily Time With God, read or listen to the Bible

You can read a physical Bible, or read/listen using a Bible app (we recommend YouVersion).

Priority = After you’ve spent time in worship, read or listen to the Bible. Plan for 5x per week. All of us occasionally “miss”...that’s normal. The key is to do your best to not miss 2 consecutive days.

Pray = Ask God to help you understand what you read. He promises to “lead us into truth” (John 16:13).

Plan = Decide what you’re going to read. We recommend reading at least a paragraph at a time…and working up to larger chunks. A predefined reading plan makes this easier. Here are some ideas:

 • Join the Church Reading Plan

 • Read 1 John, then Gospel of John, then all the New Testament (Matthew-Revelation)

 • Pick a book of the Bible and read straight through. If you are just getting started (or even re-started), we recommend you start in the New Testament.
