You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:13-16
OBSERVATION: May we never become so consumed with the world around us that we lose sight of those around us who desperately need to hear the saving message of Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: Lord, we’re committed to partnering with missionaries around the world. May unreached people groups be reached with the Gospel. And Lord, as we partner to reach around the globe, empower us to also walk across the street. Right here, right now, we know there are many who need a relationship with Jesus. We know you love them all, as you love us, and we want them to experience that love. May we truly be the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
