“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16
Salt gives flavor to any dish. It is used to marinate food, give a little kick to meals and balance out the taste in the dish. So why did God tell us that we are the salt of the earth? Because we should be adding flavor into this bland world. We were made in order to give life to others. If we do not do this, then we lose our purpose. We’re merely adding blandness to this already tasteless world that we’re living in.
God made us in order to be the light of the world. This is our purpose. Of course when you think about it, how on earth are you supposed to give light to this world? Simple, when you have God in you, you have His power and that power will allow you to share the light to those who are in need of direction. This is the power of prophecy. Prophecies can give direction and guidance not only to you but to those you love.
