The Bible says that we called to be SALT and LIGHT to the lost. Matthew 5:13 says “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.” If you tell people that you are a Christian and then live your life as if you were not, then what kind of influence are you having on people? SALT is added to give flavor and influence the taste of the food.
Likewise, God has called you to influence those around you in such a way that your life should point others towards CHRIST, not away from HIM. If you are not living your life in such away that is pleasing to God and leading others towards HIM, then you are no longer good for anything ‘except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot’. Today is a new day, repent and turn your life around. Decide today that you are no longer going to live for yourself, but for GOD! It is tyme for you to stand up and start LIVING OUT LOUD (LOL). Become the person that God has called you to be, fulfill your purpose. Live your life in such a way that you are leading others towards Christ, using words if necessary. Let your LIGHT shine brightly and your SALT influence many.
