Light and salt, not a whip.

When Christ came, he wasn’t trying to force anyone into Judaism. He brought much light, much understanding to basic things. Things that we had long lost attention of.

To our surprise, when someone asked Jesus what should they do to do the work of God, Jesus’ answer wasn’t to go and offer more sacrifices at the Temple. It wasn’t to pray and fast for 40 days. It wasn’t to give your money to the poor. It wasn’t to cause harm to yourself in thinking you’d be rewarded later on.

Here’s how the dialogue went:

(John 6:28-29) Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

As Christians, we are the light and salt of the world. We bring sight and understanding to gray areas. We bring taste to this life, as we know it. We’re not called to force anyone to eat, drink or behave according to our approval. We point to Christ, and not ourselves.

Christ is truly the cloud and independent platform. All the work done for you at no sweat of yours.

“Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” (John 6:27)

Reflect Christ with a loving taste. Bitterness whips. Salt gives taste. Light shines and shows the way. Christ Jesus is the way.
