Salt and 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 5:13-16New International Version (NIV)

We are to be salt and light in a dark world. The ultimate and light enter the world under the title Messiah. He left his throne in glory and He became sin who knew no sin..that we might be called His righteousness. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world in light of His ultimate sacrifice.
How are we salt and light in this world?

We take our light out of the church house and allow the Holy Spirit to shine through us where we live, work, play, shop, eat every day.
Why do we need to do that?

We were commissioned by our good Father to be witnesses of Him in our neighborhoods, (Judea), down the road or in our county and the county next door (Samaria), and to the ends of the earth…FACEBOOK..the Internet… Twitter. SHARE JESUS..that is being salt and light.

We have an opportunity to be set apart from the world. To live lives that demonstrates that we are truly set apart. No, we are not perfect..but we are set apart. We all go through those times in our lives when we step off that narrow path and make mistakes. God knows what to do when that happens. He simply loves in us. He waits while we are hanging out on the side of the narrow path..not going forward nor backward. He reaches out to us through His word and song, or even another person, and blows on our candle, fans that flame until our light is shining brightly. Then here is the clincher….He FORGETS THE SIN WE COMMITTED..and tells us to go forward and be a beacon of light. Can you imagine how powerful your conversion story will be when you can personally state that you have been there..and don’t that…

And He brought you back and said..now what? What are you going to do with that light?

Share it, speak it, but more importantly lives it. He will use how we live to sprinkle salt on the food that we call this world where life is tasteless and purposeless. The salt of the Holy Spirit makes it tastes and purposeful.
