Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. (Mat 5:13-16)
If our actions and our words are no longer flavored by His Word, and guided by His Spirit, we are no better than dirt, and our light is dimmed. It does not mean you can lose what God has done in you, but it can mean that you never had it in the first place. Unless God builds the House, the people labor in vain that build it.
For those of us, who do have the security of the believer, because it is God who saves, and sanctifies us, we are His ministers: to go and tell, spreading a little salt wherever He sends us, and shining as His ambassadors in this lost and dying world.
As we go, we are to minister to those in need, on mission for Jesus Christ, that others might see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. As we go, we are to disciple one another in the Word that we might grow thereby, and in Love that all men may know that we are His disciples indeed. As we go, we are to live the Gospel we preach, and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for Salvation to all who will hear and believe, so that in believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
