My prayer for you today is that you will be God’s Salt and Light to the world – everyday.
In Matthew 5:13-15, Jesus says, “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. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 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.”
Jesus is speaking metaphorically referring using salt and light as symbols to represent how we are to be as ambassadors to the world.
Salt is something we receive internally. Light is what should emanate from us – externally
We must strive to keep the Light pure and always maintain the flavor of the Salt within us.
By the Salt we win some by ‘friendship evangelism’ and by the Light we allow them to see the difference between the sins of darkness and the light of God’s love, grace, and forgiveness.
May your day and everyday –be filled with Salt and Light – so the joy of the Lord and your joy may be full!s
