Distinctive Discipleship: Being Salt and Light

Here's a gem I dug up while reading in preparation for the sermon on salt and light. The author sums up in three sentences my whole sermon...

The outcome of distinctive discipleship is intended to be that other people will notice and, though sometimes they may respond with cynicism and persecution, ultimately the light will have its effect and they will recognize and acknowledge the goodness of the God who is its source. Disciples, therefore, must be both distinctive and involved. Neither the indistinguishably assimilated nor the inaccessible hermit will fulfill the mandate of these challenging verses. – R. T. France
