We Are Being Counted On


"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again" (Matt.5:13)?

Many of us can probably quote the last part of Matthew 28 and Mark 16 that is commonly called The Great Commission... Jesus tells his disciples to go and preach about Him, and since they are gone, the torch is passed on to us. We are to be the salt and light... A casual walk through the mall will bring us face to face with hundreds of people in a very short time. On some days, we probably come in contact with many more people than we can possibly relate to in a meaningful way. Our ability to relate is crippled by the sheer numbers, and since we can't relate to or recognize everyone, we are tempted to relate to no one... Eventually, we will lose any ability we might have to carry on meaningful relationships with anyone. We become isolationists.. There are even more things that curtail our effectiveness... Despite inventions that save great amounts of time for us, we seem to be more busy than ever. The texting, social network, and demands on our schedule, make the world move at a dizzying pace. We probably find ourselves unable to slow down our world. It is easy for us to feel that there is simply no room left in our lives to possibly add the call of Jesus to bring others to Him. To remain as the salt of the earth, what are we to do? Since many of us are not teachers or preachers, there has to be another way. Before we can share the Good News, we must Be The Good News....As we all strive to know more of God's will in our lives, it is incumbent on us to live out the gospel each day. We cannot create a credibility gap between us and the world, but we can act the way Jesus wants us to act. Instead of saying it loudly, we can all do it loudly... More tomorrow...

Have a great start to your week... Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
