In “Being the Salt and Light to the World,” Pete Cuison writes, “With Christ in our hearts and the power of the Holy Spirit, we are the salt and light of the world. When we do so, people will see our good works and praise God in heaven. The salt doesn’t do any good in the shaker, and neither does light help to light a path if it is never turned on. To live out Jesus’ teaching of being salt and light, we must live our faith before others and be willing to speak about our faith with friends, neighbors, and co-workers.”
Living the Sermon on the Mount, 17.
Matthew 5:13–16 (HCSB) “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? It’s no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled on by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
