DTR: Internal, External

main image

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!!

DTR: Sermon on the Mount

main image

Many scholars believe this is the greatest sermon that Jesus ever taught. There are so many practical things that we can focus on that will help us become more like Him. In Matthew 5:1 it says When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Jesus purposely left the crowd and climbed the mountain. The committed climbed up the mountain to be with Him, Then he began to teach them.  Jesus is still looking for those few disciples willing to take the journey up the mountain to be with Him. It is so much easier for us to be busy doing religious activity than to take time to be with our King. Make an appointment in your schedule today to spend some uninterrupted time with Jesus. Matthew 5 would be a great chapter to ponder. Jesus is looking for Men and women who are humble and willing to be given direction. He also wants us to be Kingdom minded. You can't be kingdom minded if you are not regularly meeting with the King. Take some time at the dinner table this week to share with those you love some things you learned by spending time with your King.
