Light Jesus Gospel Truth God

Light and Salt

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.

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”

~Matthew 5:13-16 (MSG)

Lord, please help me to never lose my saltiness.  I want to bring out the “God-flavors” in this world.  I want to be used to bring out the flavor of life.  I pray that I can be used to show people who You are through my every action.  May my actions be  pleasing in Your sight.  May I be a bringer of joy, peace, and love!  May I be used to advance Your Kingdom purpose!

Lord Jesus, thank You for being the light of the world and piercing through the darkness.  May Your light shine brilliantly through me.  May I be used to bring out the “God-colors” in this world.
