What does it means to be the salt and the light of this world? Salt is a sweetener and preservatory materials often use to preserve food and perishable things in history even before the invention of refrigeration. Also the light was an agent of the WORD of GOD released from the begining to subdue darkness at the inception of creation. Jesus is the WORD and the LIGHT. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus said: I am the vine, you're the branch and my Father is the Vinedresser. (John 15:1) denoting that Jesus Christ is the link that nutures and sustains life with God. To accept Him in truth and in spirit is to be kept alive and become the salt and light of the earth, but to reject Him is to reject the vital "VINE" that supplies LIFE to the body hence Jesus said: 'No branch can bear fruit by itself unless it abide in the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me (John 15:4). He says further; apart from me you can't do nothing (v5)

The abiding Spirit of God in you will quicken you to live the perfect and excellent Kingdom ethical life that transcends all unethical characters of this age. the peril for the practitioners of Kingdom ethics is that they will fight you as they did to the patriachs but most assuredly, they will not overcome you (Jeremiah 1:19
