Matthew 5:13-16 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
Salt and light
13 ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 ‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Last night I was at a fundraising concert where the band played an arrangement of this lovely Joy Webb song. The piece was rightfully received with the spirit it should (not a soul clapped at the end).
The video and words of the song reminds us that we have to be a Candle for the Lord and try to remain strong in this troubled world of ours.
If you would like to listen to the arrangement the band played it’s on YouTube arranged by Peter Graham.
