Jesus charged His followers to be salt and light. We are called to preserve enhance the God-flavors of the earth, as salt is used to preserve or enhance the flavor of food. He created us to bring out the God-colors in the world, just as light permeates the darkness. We have been commissioned to live in such a way that those who encounter us are moved to know and glorify the One we serve. He is not a secret to be kept. Let us choose daily to take up our crosses and influence the world toward the things of God..
