Ep 43: Sermon on the Mount: Salt and Light
We're diving into the images of salt and light that Jesus uses in this section of the Sermon on the Mount. Both of these are elements we all use every day, but by looking at the historical and contextual implications of these metaphors, we can get a better idea of what Jesus meant when He called us to be these agents of impact. 

Salt is a preservative that slows down decay. Salt is on the defense while the light is on the offense, dispelling darkness from areas wherever it's present. How does this apply to us? Why does Jesus call us to live like this? Join me as we talk about these metaphors and other Scriptures that remain timeless and applicable today!

Cultivate with Kelly Minter

The Cultivate Podcast is all about deepening our understanding of Scripture for a deeper love of Jesus. That's my simple hope. Yet we live in a crazy busy culture that makes it hard to prioritize Bible study. Not to mention, for many of us the Bible can be plain confusing or intimidating. That's why I'm so excited about this podcast! We'll get to study God's Word together.

Absolutely nothing has gone after every crevice of my heart like Scripture. It's the most relevant and alive book on earth and I can't wait for God to meet you exactly where you're at as we open the Bible together. I also happen to love cooking, gardening, having people over, and deep relationships. So I'll always do my best to keep it real, practical, and personal. Whether you're brand new to the Bible or a seasoned student of Scripture, I hope you'll join me on this hopeful journey.

About Kelly Minter

Hi There. My name is Kelly Minter and I'm a Bible study author and teacher. I've written several Bible studies for Lifeway, including Finding God Faithful, All Things New, No Other Gods, Ruth, and a few others. I love to teach the Bible at my Cultivate Events across the country and also locally at my home church. I have a passion for missions, which is why I also work in the Amazon jungles of Brazil and the Eastern European country of Moldova with Justice & Mercy International. I wrote a book about my work in the Amazon called Wherever The River Runs. It's dear to my heart. I also love cooking, gardening, and having people to my house. It turns out, I pretty much wanted to write about that too, so a cookbook called A Place at the Table was born. Mostly, I love engaging with people as we study God's Word together, which is why I'm especially excited about the brand new Cultivate Podcast.

So timely

Your episode on Hannah was such a timely word and blessing for my life as it has been year after year of trials but as you reminded us of Hannah and her fight to still worship God, I too will. I loved most of all that all of this was "a way for her to go deeper with God and worship the BLESSER over the blessing" My God - what a powerful word! Thank you so much for showing up! #iamrelentless

Yay!! You're back!!

Yay!! Your back! I've missed your podcasts! So insightful and inspiring as you teach God's Word.
