Matthew 5:13-16

Matthew 5:13-16

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.

How salty and bright are you? Jesus desires that his followers influence the world for the good. We are not to reflect this world but to influence this world. The world is corrupt; it needs salt. The world is degenerating but the Church is still present. It slows this process down.

Just imagine if the Church were not here? The chaos, the lack of True Hope. The world is dark; it needs the light. As Christ followers we are to so shine our light that others see Jesus and praise God. We will have some sort of impact today. It will either be to lift ourselves up or it will be to lift Christ Jesus up and bring God glory.

Ask for help from the Holy Spirit today to serve the LORD faithfully and fully.

Open His Word and Enjoy.
