Today’s Inspiration: “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:5-6. Salt is produced by water and fire and so is our spiritual growth with God’s Word and Holy Spirit. Spiritual maturity comes by growing in the Word of God. Without the Word of God, there is no power, presence, provision. Our ministry, family and work cannot grow beyond our spiritual growth in the Word and Spirit. It is the Word of God that differentiate our lives with the World and it’s the Spirit that give us the anointing.
Evangelism requires the Word and Spirit of God. Jesus taught the disciples,” You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16. We need both Word and Spirit to save souls.
Prayer: O Lord my God, let me be salted by your Word daily to share the gospel and be lit to share your testimonies of my life. Change my life to be more like you Lord, and use my life for the glory of God. Lead me to new opportunities where I can evangelise and share your goodness so that more souls can be saved and also pray and watch over the welfare of others. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
