Good morning people who have the right perspective on God
Salt can be an incredible enhancer of an already delicious meal. But it is not the meal.
Our lives are intended to be an incredible enhancer to people’s lives around us.
Matthew 5:13 (NIV) You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
But our lives are not the main thing.
Life is not meant to revolve around us. Self-talk is not attractive. An unhealthy focus on self is damaging to ourselves and others around us. Our lives should be influential, but we simply play a partin the whole.
God Almighty is different!
God is the Salt and the Main Meal. He is everything and He is All in All. He is the Beginning and the End. He is the First and the Last. He preceded time and He transcends time. He gives life and He sustains life. He is Life.
In a time when self pervades society, government, entertainment, pleasure, recreation, pursuits and hobbies, it is often also seen in the lives of those who have been crucified with Christ.
“Where did we buy into the lie that God could be a welcome addition to our lives?”
God is a jealous God and He will not share His glory with another, not even with us as children of God. It is all about God and without Him we are nothing.
Today I simply want to call us back to a Biblical way of living: God is our All in All; our Everything. We died and now Christ lives in us. It’s all about Him.
