In the New Testament we read the teaching of Jesus. Some of His teaching concerned everyday life in this world.
We are reminded that we are of God, and the whole world remains in sin and darkness (I John 5:19). We live in this world but this is not our home.
Jesus asked us to remain faithful until He returns. One of the ways we can honor His Word is to be Salt and Light.
In Matthew, chapter five, Jesus is teaching about our part or our responsibility in the Christian walk. Notice His statements about us:
Ye are the salt of the earth (verse 13)
Ye are the Light of the world (verse 15)
The phrase, salt of the earth, could also be read salt of the land, or, you are the salt for where you live. Salt provides protection from spoilage. It is a preservative.
When we vote, we demonstrate our Biblical responsibility to be salt, to prevent corruption.
When we go into the world, we are to be light. As salt is physical to our land (community), light is spiritual!
Light is used to guide, to illustrate, and to locate the right path. Jesus is the light of the world, because He lives in us, we are to let our light shine in this dark world.
Part of pushing back the darkness and helping the future of our children and grandchildren is to go vote!
