Inspiration for Today - 27 Feb 12

What kind of Christian are you? Do you advertise your faith? Do you share your testimony or perhaps your recent Sunday service experience with others? Or, do you hide your Christianity? Do you joke and cuss as your fellow co-workers do?

When Jesus preached in Matthew 5, He referred to Christians as being the salt and light of the earth. It truly defines how useful we are to furthering the Kingdom and saving others from hell.

In Matthew 5:13 (NKJV) He says that, "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men."

How good are you as a Christian? Are you flavored or unflavored salt? He went on to use another analogy calling us the light of the world.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV), "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."

Are you a brightly lit light standing atop a hill or is your faith and your Christianity covered up from the world?

We all fall short but many times we need to be recharged in our faith. That's what church is suppose to be doing for you, but you also need a daily walk with God filled with reading His Word, prayer, and spreading the gospel to those that need it the most; the unbeliever.

The Inspiration for Today posts are here to help encourage you. They are here to provide a little bit of cheer and recharge through your day. I pray that they do.

I encourage you to not hide your light of faith or become a bland Christian. Rather, stay focused on Jesus and lead people along, saving them from eternal death.
