Day 27

Daily Focus: Be Salt and Light in the Earth

Jesus called His followers to be “salt in the earth and light to the world.”


Matthew 5:13-16 (NIV)
13  “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
14  “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
15  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
16  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Ephesians 5:8-10 (NIV)
8  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
9  (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
10  and find out what pleases the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 (NIV)
You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.


Father, let us (them) be SALT in the earth and LIGHT to the world in our families, in school, at work, in church and in the market-place in Jesus’ Powerful Name. Amen
