As we saw this morning, the students are an important part of our church. As they served this morning they displayed the Giving step in our discipleship journey. God is very pleased when we use our gifts to serve! Today Travis shared with us the importance of being salt and light. He shared that salt represents the internal, our character. Our Character should be that of preserving and slowing decay. If we as disciples of Jesus are true to our calling we will make the earth purer and a more palatable place. So as we go throughout our day whether at school, at home, or in the workplace we should provide a salty flavorful character that makes the world thirst for the relationship we have in Jesus. As the scripture teaches what is on the inside will come out. May we have salt like character that pleases Him. The second thing we learned today was The External represents light. The purpose of light is to shine. Where there is light the darkness fades away. As we shine the light of our lives, those in darkness are given the ability to see. As Jesus stated Let your light shine before men so that they may see your good works and give glory to God! May we be salt and light to our community this week!!
In Christ, Chad
