Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
You are the Salt of the Earth
The next time you reach for the salt, stop and think about something. Salt doesn’t do any good if it is left inside the salt shaker. It has to be poured out to be of any use. The same is true of us. As followers of Christ, He has called us to be salt to the world around us, which means we need to actually come in contact with unsaved people. And when we do, what affect should “our salt” have on them? Today’s message explores some of the powerful ways Christ can influence others through us.
