Be Salt And Light In Your Community
Salt is an important ingredient with many functions. It preserves and brings out the best flavour of food. So, believers should be the salt of the earth and affect others positively. Believers are also called light of the world. With Jesus’ light in them, they cannot stumble in the darkness of this world. They are clearly showing what Christ is to the world. They are not to hide their light in their environment, rather, others should know that they are indeed children of light (verse 15). The issues of secret disciples does not arise here. I am a Christian in the heart, but I don’t want people to know, that person has not seen the light. Your light must shine before men that they will see your good works and glorify God through you (verse 16)
Point of Emphasis: Do not hide your light in Christ from others.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to influence others positively for Christ in my community.
