A lesson on – Salt & Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16
This scripture is extremely powerful and something we should remember often. Salt (rock salt) must remain pure to do its job of preserving meat. If the salt was mixed (often times with earthen material) this made the salt worthless and was disposed of. Similarly, Christians must enter society while keeping themselves from being influenced by sin in the world. If Christians lose our ability to keep the Earth salty for Him then how will life continue? Light infiltrates and ceases darkness. As a Christian, we know the truth and we must stand for it! Let your light shine. Be the salt and be the light!
