Salt and light

You can have an influence in the lives of those around you. In fact, it is part of your calling and destiny as Christians that we would be like salt and light.

• Salt brings flavour

Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth.

Matthew 5:13 “You are the world’s seasoning, to make it tolerable. If you lose your flavour, what will happen to the world?”

• Light brings hope

Matthew 5:14-16 You are the world’s light—a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light! Let it shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.

There are so many ways in which we can have an influence in the lives of others. This influence can have eternal ramifications. Through what we say and do and how we conduct our lives, we can so influence people’s lives that they too may choose to follow after God. You have a unique opportunity to do just this.

It has been said the average person influences 10,000 people in their lifetime. As such your life is powerful and the question is what influence are you having?

Just because you are here, you have the potential of making a difference. Use this potential to make an eternal difference in the lives of others and in particular those around you.
