“YOU are the SALT of the earth… 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. In the same way, LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE OTHERS, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”
The Sermon on the Mount… Where Jesus told his disciples that they were the salt and light of the world… All of which is still applicable to Christians today…
Salt was used to preserve food, so Jesus was calling His disciples to preserve the world from moral decay and sin. We are called to protect and amplify God’s goodness around the world.
Illuminate. Christ calls us to also ALWAYS make His presence and goodness evident and visible to those around us. Let the light of Jesus shine through you each and everyday. “Let your light shine before others…” Matthew 5:16 ❤
