DAY 21 MONDAY: MAY 2018

A CHRISTIAN IS BOTH SALT AND LIGHT!

You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses it flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden (Matthew 5:13-14).

Every Christian is both salt and light of the world. The importance of both can never be overemphasized. The Bible says in the opening text that you are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses it flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Both salt and light are wonderful ingredients full of diverse characteristics.

Take for instance; salt is used as both preservative and seasoning. It has the potency to preserve food by eliminating germs completely and season it by adding more flavors to food. That is why no matter the ingredients added to a pot of soup without salt, it becomes tasteless. A Christian is a salt that is supposed to preserve and season the earth with the goodness of the Lord by eliminating evil and wickedness from the world.      

Furthermore, light reveals, manifests and gives direction. When there is no light people are bound to live in darkness. It is only light that has the potency to drive away darkness. Whenever there is light darkness disappears because it is greater and more powerful. That is why the Bible says in Isaiah 60:1, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you (Isaiah 60:1). A Christian is the light of the world.

Daily Tip: A Christian is the salt and light of the world to preserve and season the earth by eliminating darkness and evil from the lives of men. Shalom!

Golden Text: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
