Get Out of the Salt Shaker

30 Jan

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 in these verses)

Look at your world!  What morals are lived out?  What kind of morals are you watching on TV?  Are they ones you salt shakerwish your children or grandchildren to adopt?  Whose influence is being felt strongest over the TV, radio, in the schools, colleges, and on your computer?  God’s or Satan’s?  And who is responsible for this degradation?  Just this–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.  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 allowing the evil in the world—and make a change?

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

My Prayer to God:

I praise You for Your presence that guides us in being Your witness.

I am sorry for allowing evil to go on around me and not speaking out.

Thank You for your love and forgiving heart toward mankind.

Help me to speak up for Your truth instead of condemning the sinner.
