Salt Bites & Light Burns
“You are salt for the Land. But if salt becomes tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except being thrown out for people to trample on.
“You are light for the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Likewise, when people light a lamp, they don’t cover it with a bowl but put it on a lampstand, so that it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.’
- Matt.5:13-16 (CJB)
Note that the the Salt is for the land.
The salt represents Jesus’ followers whom are called to bless the land they live on/in. You are a seasoning and a preservative to your nation to 'taste and see that the Lord is good'. You are to be 'tasty'.
Note that the Light is for the world.
The followers of Jesus Christ are the light to the unbelievers.
"Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." - Isaiah 9:7 (KJV)
How do we extract salt? By exposing sea water to Sun light, which vapors the water and the salt crystalizes.
The Sea water represents the worldly thinking, which disappears when God's Presence (Sun Light) shines upon you (salt) and the Christlikeness in you gets more and more visible (cristals)!
Cristals disperse the multi-dimensional colors to reflect the beauty of Lord Jesus Christ to the world.
"To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:...” - Ephesians 3:10-11 (CJB)
Pray that the Lord may bless you to be Salt to your nation. That you may season and preserve the blinded people who walk in darkness, to bring them into the Kingdom of His Marvellous Light.
Pray that you may grow in Christlikeness to become this huge cristal who will reflect His Son more and more to your surroundings.
