BE YE SALT & LIGHT
Matthew 5:13 ” 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 on by men.”
Salt is a preservative and a flavoring, found all over the earth, for man & animals to use. All living things need salt. Without salt nothing lives.
The scene: The Lamp: Salt and light represent God’s people, living among non-believers.
Matthew 5:14 ” You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
Light eliminates darkness so people can see clearly. Believers show non-believers the way to live for Jesus and the way from sin (darkness). God’s people can shine and represent the Light (Jesus) to the World.
Matthew 5:16 ” Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, it gives light to everyone in the house. In this same way, let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds (works, KJV) and praise your Father in heaven.”
Without God’s people in this world there is darkness, chaos & anarchy, a depraved generation.
