+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Matt. 5, 13-16

I.

The church [is] the main factor in maintaining high values and their application to mankind.  [They are] especially needed in a time of world upheaval.

II.

A light-house–keeps alive and holds aloft the flame of truth and love and righteousness.  Jesus is the Light of the world and the church carries that light int the darkened places and lives of men.

III.

The channel through which divine power is transmitted to others.  This power to uplift men to high living is indispensable.

IV.  

A citadel standing like a rock against the tides of evil which would dethrone God and drag men down to the lowest pit.  “Let us hold to what good we have and make it better.”

V.

It is a house by the side of the road ministering to the careworn, heart-sick, and afflicted, lifting the fallen and protecting the defenseless.

Valuable?  Beyond measure!
