Sermon Notes:

BE ROOTED: The greatest thing I can ever be is a CHILD OF GOD

Matthew 5:13
“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 underfoot. (NIV)

Here, Jesus compares His followers (us) to salt and tells us we need to remain salty (aka useful), reminding us that if we aren’t salty, we actually become useless to further His kingdom.

Matthew 5:14-16
You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (NIV)

Christ followers are to be salty (useful) in everyday life so people will recognize their saltiness (good deeds) and as a result, glorify God.

You and I are called (as Christians) to be salty so others will see our lives, in other words, taste our saltiness and become thirsty for the LIVING WATER.

John 4:3-14
3So he left Judea and returned to Galilee. 4He had to go through Samaria on the way. 5Eventually he came to the Samaritan village of Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. 6Jacob’s well was there; and Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. 7Soon a Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

8He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food.9The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?”

10Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

11“But sir, you don’t have a rope or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this living water? 12And besides, do you think you’re greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well? How can you offer better water than he and his sons and his animals enjoyed?”

13Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. 14But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” (NLT)

Jesus talked about “living water” – so powerful that whoever drinks it will never thirst again.

If Jesus calls us to be the salt of the Earth, what does our saltiness need to look like?
