Christians as “Salt & Light” of the World (Matthew 5:13-16)

Christians as the “Salt of the Earth”

In the gospel according to Matthew, Jesus taught that Christians are the salt of the world, but, if salt loses its taste, it is difficult to restore it. The salt becomes worthless and has to be thrown away.

Salt is good because it preserves food from decay. It also improves the taste of the food that we eat.

salt of the earth

As “salt of the earth”, the Christian’s duty is to affect others positively, just as seasoning brings out the best flavour in food.

Christians are to become the agent of preserving and improving the quality of life in society, so that there would be a good relationship between God and man, and among men.

Therefore, Christians are to affect others positively and lead them the right way. Christians should live by keeping the commandments and laws of God.

Christians as the “Light of the World”

“Light signifies life. The absence of light brings darkness, men cannot function in darkness.

As “Light of the world, a city built on a hill that cannot be hidden, this means that Christians should grow like lights, showing others what Christ is like

light of the world

Let your light so shine before men

that they may see your good works

and give glory to your Father  who

is in heaven”
