According to Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus tells his disciples that they are the salt and the light. R.T. France in his Tyndale commentary wrote, "Disciples, if they are true to their calling, make the earth a purer and a more tasty and favorable place." Pastor Joon Hwang challenges that the disciples of Jesus must stand out like a salt to a bland food and the light to the darkness. We cannot forget our calling. However, we need to pursue this calling together with other believers, otherwise we will be discourage and give up. We need the community of faith who are on the same page with each other and pursue this calling together. We are definitely "better together".
