Arise, Lord, and shine. Drive out the darkness! Drive out the night! Help us to love Your light. And help us to be salt and light in a dark world.
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (Matt. 5:13-14).” We, as Christians, must continue to be salt and light–not only when it is convenient but when it is most inconvenient. Certainly, it is easy to be salt when we’re surrounded by numerous other granules of salt. But what happens when we’re the lone salty ranger? Likewise, when we’re a part of the humongous and exquisite chandelier, we have no problem being light. But what happens in the work place where we’re the only bulb with Holy Ghost wattage? Do we elect to save our light and salt for another occasion and choose instead to go on ‘spiritual hiatus?’
Christianity inconveniences man and makes him uncomfortable. “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (John 3:19).” Yes, sinful man, prefers darkness and is uncomfortable in the light. The light exposes. The light provides guidance. His Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (Ps. 119:105). The light allows us to see ourselves. Yet, we prefer to keep going down the same path, the wrong path. We prefer the darkness. Jesus, the light of the world, has come into the world. Yet, man prefers to “do it his way”… loving darkness more than light. “Pour on the salt & turn on the light.” A dying world needs it.
