HOST: Michael Whitworth
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
As Christians, we have the wonderful blessing of being children of God and heirs of the kingdom of heaven. In a sense, we have stepped out of the world to live with and for God. But in another sense, we are called to continue to live in the world, not according to the world’s thinking, but in a way that makes this world a better place and brings it a little closer to God. As salt, we are called to bring goodness, healing, and preservation to a lost and hurting world through the love that God has shown to us. As lights, we are to bring Christ’s light into a dark world and allow our good works to illuminate God to His glory. As the world witnesses our lives, they should catch a glimpse of the love and goodness of God and be drawn to Him through our influence. What a privilege it is to be children and servants of God, and what a great opportunity we have to share God with this world through our lives!
How can you use your Christian life to make your world a better place?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
