Salt and Light of the world..You and I??

Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus tells his disciples, "You are the salt of the earth" and "You are the light of the world."

What exaclty does this mean??

We (christians) are salt and light of the world meaning that we are/have been giving life through Jesus Christ. We are needed to live as a light for this world. The world rots away with sin and I mean just look around at all the things that are happening. Think of the world and our sins as rotting meat. Back in the day the way to have clean meat was to use salt as an antiseptic. As salt, you can't just be beside the meat to clarify it, you(salt) have to be rubbed deep into the meat! We are in this world as christians for the benefit of Christ and having our ways and our morals different from others.

It seems that evil is good and good is evil. We are so mixed up in what is okay as a it okay to do this or do that?? It gets so confusing, but if we as christians keep our eyes on Jesus just as Peter did on the water then think about how much salt and light we can be. So how much salt are you? Maybe showing your light is by a simple smile to someone at Walmart or letting someone go ahead of you in line that only has one or two things compared to your buggy full. There are so many ways to show your light, lets see how bright we can get it to shine!!

1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. 2Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

I haven't posted pictures of my cuties in a while so I will share our Easter pictures that we had taken last weekend with B&P Photography. They are a local business that does an awesome job at photography.
