Bible Text: Matthew 5:14-16 | Preacher: Pastor Dawn McCann | Series: All Out | As Jesus said, we are in the world, but not of it … but we are to go to it. We need to come out of hiding. What happens in our services can happen in the streets … when we know who we are. We are discovering what it is that God is conveying to us so we can impact and change the culture. Jesus went out among the forbidden, sinning, corrupted people—on purpose. He made a point over and over again to demonstrate how His bride would look, talk, and love. Fear controls much of what we do – and that causes Christians to hide from society, instead of answering the cry of God’s heart to go and spread the good news. But TAKE COURAGE – God has a plan. He has already made a way for us to be the influence, the salt, and the light that we are supposed to be. When we know that we are loved, we love. He is love, and we are created in His image. You see, the best way to bring change is to allow God’s design to rule in you and flow out of you!
