Salt & Light | Part 1

In Jesus’s day, salt was used to keep food from going bad, it’s purpose was preservation. The test was in the taste, if it tasted like salt, it was still useful. As soon as it began to taste like fish (or whatever it was preserving) it was no longer good for use, and would be be thrown away.
Jesus said we that we are the salt and light of the Earth. Salt for preservation and light for revelation.

Your mission should you choose to accept it, can be found in 2 Corinthians 5:17-21.

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."

We are to continue the ministry of Jesus, who came to reconcile the world to the Father.

How did He do this?

By judging what He was called to preserve....  No that doesn't sound right?!

There it is... "By not counting their trespasses against them!"

… the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son ...

(John 5:22)

… I did not come to judge the world, but to save it ...

(John 12:47)
