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 underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matt 5:13-16 Ever walk into a room with many lights on and no shadow. It is strange because everything stands out. Jesus said some simple things. Our evil deeds cause us to hide from God. As followers of Christ we are to be light to others. Our behaviour is our testimony of Christ on earth These are important ideas and thoughts. But my friends if we face them alone we have already been defeated because Jesus calls us as a family, together through love to discover this, with all our obvious weaknesses and failures out it the open. In any family, everyone is known and none can get away with the habits others know exist. How is it some believers think we can be a dim light and a failed example, and that is what Jesus was actually meaning? I suspect some neither really believe or have seen the light, let alone become the light for others.
