MATTHEW 5:13-16, 1st Corinthians 8:4
Jesus was teaching his disciples and he told them that they are the salts of the Earth, this means as a Christian you are to have taste and add taste to the life of others, that is to say our life must be a reflection of Christ.
The life that Christ wants you to show to the world is in your attitude, your character and your ways of life. What type of life are you living?
When a salt lose its taste it will be thrown away and men will step on it, likewise believers, when we lose our taste as Christians we will be misused by men. As a Christian is your lifestyle the type that people will see and will want to change and become a Christian?, or the type that people will see and say if that is the attitude of a Christian I won’t want to be a Christian?. As the light of the world can people see you and come to church?
There are things we do as a light to the world because people are watching us as Christians, so we must live a life worth emulating because people are watching. The character you possess will determine how your light will shine.
As Christians we must be very very careful with the kind of life we live, because there are things that we do that can discourage other persons.
What life are you living? Check your life, for every sin a man commits, there is a punishment for it. The plan of God concerning Adam and Eve never came to pass, so many people have blocked Gods plan because of the kind of life they live. You may conceal your sin but you can never hide it from God, so be careful with you ways and lifestyle.
When you look at this life there is nothing worth dying for, why don’t we live our life to please God. Whatever you are pursuing do it in the ways of God, let your life bring people to light.
Let the people around you see the life of God in your Life.
