Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 3rd – You’re Salt And Light

(Bring Taste And Colour To Your World)

TO THE BIBLE: Matthew 5:13-14 MSG
“Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?… Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept….”

LET’S TALK
Looking at Matthew 5:13-14, we see the Lord highlighting two of our extraordinary attributes as new creations in Christ: He calls us the salt of the earth and the light of the world. This lets you know your purpose and relevance in the world.

Besides its other uses, salt is a preservative as well as a seasoning. It preserves food against decay and also gives it flavour.

So, as “the salt of the earth,” God is trusting you to preserve and bring flavour to your world. This you can achieve by manifesting the love of God and sharing His Word with those in your sphere of contact (family, friends, neighbours, etc). This is your God-given responsibility.

Also, the latter part of the scripture says, “You are the light of the world….” What is light? Light is that which reveals; it makes manifest and shows the way. Light gives direction.

Being the light of the world means you’re to give direction and guidance to those in your world. You’re a city set on a hill that can’t be hidden. Light up your world! Live up to your calling.

The Bible says, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). It doesn’t matter in which city, street, town, village or country you find yourself; you’re the light! So, shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Continue praying and winning souls, for the time is short. Keep frustrating and paralysing the works of the adversary by preaching the Gospel and demonstrating the love of God to those in your world and the regions beyond.

Pray:
Dear Father, thank you for the extraordinary attributes you’ve put in me. As the salt of the earth, I preserve the lives of men and women through prayer and the ministry of the Word; and as the light of the world, I show them the way, by leadership and example. I show the light of the glorious Gospel everywhere I go, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
