Thoughts That Changed My Life
“You are the salt of the world,” and “You are the light of the world.”
I remember as a young man in Obafemi Awolowo University, certain statements I read by Christ transformed me. Jesus said in his Word, “You are the salt of the world,” and “You are the light of the world.” Salt is for preservation and it has global relevance. I don’t know if there’s any nation on earth where salt is not in use. When He said, “I am the salt of the earth,” He gave me hope. It transformed the image I had about myself. If I am the salt of the earth, that means I have something to offer my world.
He went on to say that “You are the light of the world; a city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Those words transformed my thinking. I used to have negative thoughts about myself but now, I am fully aware that I am the light of the world. Light is for leadership.
To aid your understanding of “the Light of the World,” just think of a room filled with darkness, and then someone comes in with candlelight; unconsciously, you automatically gravitate towards him.
So when Christ said that “I am the light of the world,” I started seeing myself as the leader setting the pace because I have something to offer my generation.
He says, “You are the head and not the tail; you’re above only and not beneath.” Statements like these transformed the image I had about myself and set me on a journey to greatness.
What kind of picture do you have about yourself? Any time you listen to God’s Word, let those Words become positive pictures and they would create new designs in your mind about your future. They will change your life forever.
