“…You are the salt of the earth. . . . You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:11-14).
“What will make the world taste (the salt) and see (the light) of Christ in us is not that we love wealth the same way they do. Rather, it will be the willingness and the ability of Christians to love others through suffering, all the while rejoicing because their reward is in heaven with Jesus. This is inexplicable on human terms. This is supernatural.” – John Piper Desiring God
