Turn On The Light

Matthew 5:13-16 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Jesus Body, You & Me

World NOT turned off by Jesus

BUT carnal Christians

We must enlarge from INSIDE OUT…

Big Inside…Big Outside

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only,

but now much more in my absence, work out

your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Ephesians 3:20 Isaiah 54:1-3 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD. 2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; 3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Break Out, Break Even, Go with Flow OR Bring Hope

Salt, Light, City… 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

1 Peter 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

1 Peter 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of,

but on your part he is glorified.

God’s Glory is Heaven’s First Agenda, Not Salvation, Not Reformation, Not even Transformation

Luke 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Matthew 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.

PRAY ….

In Matthew, Jesus speaking to outcast, poor, wrong side of tracks, non-elite, unable to believe they could have any impact on society and says, YOU are the salt, light, city. They said, You know who you are talking to? WHO ME???... Let your light so shine…

God knows your heart,,,,good, bad, truthful, faking, political, genuine, motivation, intent, right reasons, wrong reasons, U Compliment someone,,,thinking

I really wish you were dead. God knows your HEART but the person next to you doesn’t have a clue.
