Yesterday He reminds me that I am the  salt of the earth… to bring a taste of His life, to bring some flavor into the kingdom of this world…. so today… He minds me:  “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden”…  

Seems like that same kingdom is full of darkness… it needs some light.  So He sends those who contain the Light… containers of Light…. and sets us  “in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world”

Interesting progression here…  First Jesus says:   “I am the Light of the world”… hmmm… so if He is the Light, how can He say Philip is the Light…. oh… I see… He took it a step further…. “While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”…. so when He leaves the world…    “he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

Wow… we become containers of His Life… the one who is the Light of the World… so… after He leaves, He can now return to the kingdom of darkness  in us... the containers of Light… and says to the containers:   “You are the light of the world.” 

Pretty cool… not only salt… but Light…  and the darkness really needs that Light…
