SHAKE THAT SALT OUT!!

If you are a Christian are you keeping your faith all to yourself? Do you like it in your Holy Huddles where everything is comfortable or are you going out into the world as we are commanded in  Mark 16:15 and being salt and light for the kingdom? 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 but to be thrown out and trampled by man." Salt flavors food and makes it  taste better and we as believers are supposed to make our world better.

The world is in a pretty big mess right now. One of the few Christian nations on earth, the United States, is under attack by evil forces yet many within the church either refuse to believe it as if in a stupor, do not want to get involved, or are just plain complacent. How are we to heal this world if Christians do not get out there and shake some salt out of that shaker? Many say that we should not get involved in 'politics' and I ask where do they see that in the word of God? When evil forces come in and try to go against our Christian principles and the Ten Commandments, which were part of the structure for the Founding Fathers, and we sit quietly by not getting involved, then we only have to blame ourselves when we fall into tyranny. Others say "God is in control" which is in fact true but he still does not like us to just sit by when the Bible is being ignored in the halls of our leaders. It is a scary thing when a nation forgets God. When prayer was taken out of the public schools many just sat. "It is someone else's  job" they probably said. When killing babies in the womb was approved in 1973 many did not speak up. Now today millions of babies are killed in the name of 'choice' and 'women's health'. We can not continue on the path we are on and expect to be blessed by God.  When we redefine marriage in this politically correct world then look out.

Psalm 33:12 says " Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." Simply saying "God Bless You" after a speech is all fine and good but then actions have to follow. Just because a person has 'Reverend' or 'Minister' as their title does not make them a Christian. You will know them by their fruits it says in Matthew 7:16. 1 John 4:1 says " Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see if they are from God for many false prophets have gone out into the world."

Today be on your knees for this great land of freedom. Each day more freedoms are slipping away yet hardly anyone notices. We know God is on the throne. Get out there and salt your world.

PRAYER: Father I thank you that I can go out into my world and be your salt shaker. Forgive me if I have become complacent and taken freedom for granted. Lord help me make a difference in the world you have placed me in. In Jesus Name. Amen.
