The Scriptures – Matthew 5:13 and Leviticus 2:13
Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage (Matthew 5:13; MSG).
You must also put salt on all your grain offerings. Salt stands for your agreement with God that will last forever; do not leave it out of your grain offering. You must add salt to all your offerings (Leviticus 2:13, NCV).
Our job is simple – to tell others about Jesus. We can get caught up in so much doing, but this is where life is found. This is what we need to be about, as Christians who have chosen to follow Jesus.
The most important task we have, as believers, is to tell others about Jesus. Whenever we can, share how God is working in your life.
We can’t allow the lines to get blurred. Others see godliness through us. Every time we offer up the courage to tell someone about Christ, respond gently to another, or choose Jesus’ self control over your ability to hurt another with your words, you are worshiping God and God flavors enter the world. The world will illuminate, because others will get another glimpse of God. And when we do these things, this is offering ourselves to the King of Kings!
The tender mercies of God is the only reason why we can have such an important part in His Kingdom. The mercy of God has not only transferred us from death to life, but that is such a vital part. It is just the beginning, though. God has so much more in store for us, as His people loved by God, as we seek His face. We do this, through reading our Bibles, praying, and spending time in community with other Christ followers.
God has much in store for us, as His people loved by Himself. Reading our Bibles, praying, and spending time in community with other believers, is what gets us into the storehouse.
The mercies of God has also declared we can change the entire world, through the passion of Christ, His Gospel, and His power.
Lord, I love the truth of today’s message. Your mercy is so great, thank You! It is, in the light of Your mercies that I can join Your good work and offer myself – so others might see You and come to know You for themselves. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
