When Christians become salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16), they will have an enormous, immediate impact on the world around them. The world will notice a visible difference. Here are a few things 'salt' and 'light' do:
Is a preserver, keeps things from spoiling, adds flavor and seasoning, brings out taste, life and zest. Is an antiseptic, cleanses and heals, creates thirst.
Could our world benefit from Christians who preserve holiness, keep spoilage down, help bring healing to broken, wounded hearts, add life, zest and seasoning and by our lifestyle and words create a thirst for a relationship with Jesus?
Is a source of illumination, dispels darkness. Reveals, awakens and warns.
Could Christians shine or reflect the light of Christ, dispel darkness and reveal the presence of Christ to a dark world? Could our light warn of the danger of sin and reveal true forgiveness and love?
