Get Out of the Salt-Shaker!

13 Feb

God’s Word:  Matthew 5:13 Jesus said “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.”

Jesus’ Message to Me: (My interpretation of what Jesus is saying to me through these verses)

Look at your world!  What kind of morals are being lived out?  What kind of morals are you watching on TV?  Are they ones you wish your children or grandchildren to adopt?  Whose influence is being felt strongest over the TV, radio, in the schools, colleges, and on your computer?  Mine or Satan’s?  And who is responsible for this degradation?  The Christians—those who claim to believe in and follow Me.

I see you don’t want to accept that responsibility. All that it takes for immorality to be proclaimed as the “in thing,” is for Christians to keep quiet about what I have so clearly taught in the Bible.  Today the world claims politically correct means I’m okay, you’re okay, we’re all okay, just as we are.  America was founded upon Biblical principles and for righteous purposes.  But something went wrong—very wrong.  Yes, the “Christians” are the ones to blame—not the evil ones who have taken over.

I have called My people to be the salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth.  But more and more I see you huddled together in your elaborate structures, condemning the world for its immorality.  Instead, you are to be out and about, sprinkling on the salt of My Word in your sphere of influence.  When the Christian says or does nothing about the obvious evil going on around them, evil prevails and gains a stronghold.  Christian—get out of the salt- shaker.  Spread the goodness of My teaching far and wide and stop the evil that is spreading like wild-fire.

Jesus’ Question for Me: Will you accept your responsibility is causing the evil in the world?

Jesus’ Promise to Me: I do not send you out alone to combat evil—I am with you!

My Song to Jesus:    You Never Mentioned Him to Me   by James Rowe 1949

When in the better land before the bar we stand,
How deeply grieved our souls will be;
If any lost one there should cry in deep despair,
“You never mentioned Him to me.”

CHORUS:

You never mentioned Him to me,
You helped me not the way to see;
You met me day by day and knew I was astray,
Yet never mentioned Him to me.”

O let us spread the word _ where e’er it may be heard,
Help groping souls the light to see,
That yonder none may say, “You showed me not the way.”
You never mentioned Him to me.

CHORUS

You never mentioned Him to me,
You helped me not the way to see;
You met me day by day and knew I was astray,
Yet never mentioned Him to me.”

A few sweet words may guide a lost one to His side,
Or turn sad eyes on Calvary;
So work as days go by, that yonder none may cry,
“You never mentioned Him to me.”

CHORUS

You never mentioned Him to me,
You helped me not the way to see;
You met me day by day and knew I was astray,
Yet never mentioned Him to me.”
