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. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. — Matthew 5:13-16

The Bible has some pretty clear mandates for the follower of Jesus… To be a disciple means to be salt and light.

Salt gives us the reality that we are to be an agent that preserves… Light ensures that we show the way among the darkness… So, is your life displaying salt and light?

When it comes to advancing the Gospel… Salt and light WORKS! If you are a follower of Jesus today it’s because someone was salt and light.

When it comes to being a “good Christian”… I’m not so sure about that… The Bible doesn’t tell us that. However, it does give great detail about what it looks like to be a disciple or follower of Jesus. And I assure you a disciple is salt and light.

THIS IS TRUTH: Salt always preserves and light always shows the way.

Be salt. Be light.
