Metaphors of Mission


Mission is God’s initiative to save lost humanity. God’s saving mission is motivated by His love for each one of us. There is no deeper reason for it. God sent Christ on a mission to bring salvation for the whole world. Hoh’s Gospel alone contains more than forty declarations of the cosmic dimension of Jesus’ mission. (See for example, John 3:17, 12:47.) As Christ was sent by the Father to save the world, He in turns sends His disciples with the words ‘as the Gather has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21, NIV).


Read Matthew 5”13, 14. What are the two metaphors used for mission in these texts, and what do they stand for?


The metaphors of salt and light express core functions of Christian influence on humanity. While salt operates internally, joining the mass with which it comes it contact, light operates externally, illuminating all that it reaches, The term earth in the salt metaphor refers to men and women with whom Christians are expected to mix, while the term light of the world refers to a world of people in darkness that needs illumination.

The children of Israel were encouraged to live up to the moral principles and health rules that God had given them. They were to be a light, illuminating and attracting-you are “alight for the Gentiles” (Isa. 49:6, NIV). Their collective existence is a state of health, prosperity, and loyalty to God’s Sabbath and other commandments would proclaim to the surrounding nations God’s mighty acts of Creation and Redemption. The nations, observing their prosperity, would approach them and learn to be taught of the Lord. (That was the idea, anyway.)

When Christ came, He also talked about salt, another way to witness. By their influence in the world, Christians are to curb the world’ corruption. Unbelievers are often kept from evil deeds because of a moral consciousness traceable to Christian influence. Christians not only have a good influence on the corrupted world by virtue of their presence in it, they also mingle with people in order to share the Christian message of salvation.


Blight and/or salt, how good a witness are you and your church to the surrounding world? Is the light dimming is the salt losing its punch? IF so, how can you learn that revival and reformation brings with you personally?
