Tim Homa, Campus Pastor Richmond|Rosenberg

Matthew 5:13,14
You’re the salt of the earth, you’re the light of the world.


1. We need to be in places where the lost live.

  • The Proximity Principle.
  • Mark 16:15 Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation?
  • Ephesians 4:17-18 …Live no longer as the unsaved do, for they are hopelessly confused. Their closed mind are full of darkness; they are far away from the life of God because they have shut their minds and hardened their hearts against him.

2. God has wired you up for a specific purpose.

  • The Congruency Principle.
  • “Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.”
  • Romans 12:6-8 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
  • 1 Peter 4:10-11 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

3. Find common ground with people.

  • The Commonality Principle.

4. It’s not about you.

  • Romans 11:6 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.


  • John 5:24 Truly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life and shall not come to judgement, but has passed from death into life.
  • John 17:3 Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
