From Pastor’s Desk
Imagine you were there when Jesus looked into the eyes of His followers and spoke words like these to help them turn our fallen world upside down:
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?” (Matthew 5:13)
You’ve probably been in a movie theater enjoying a big bucket of salty, buttered popcorn. And all you could think about was washing it down with an oversized soda. My point is this: salt makes us thirsty.
So when Jesus told us to be “salty,” He was saying, in essence, “Let your life make others thirsty for God.”
I see brokenness and agony in people all around me, and I know you must see it too. But we can take heart that God wants to empower us to be channels of change. By our saltiness, we can be a powerful agent for Him to cleanse and heal wounded people all over our world.
The trouble is, many Christians don’t understand how to be salt in a world that so desperately needs to hear the truth about God’s love and redemption.
I know this resource will equip you to be God’s heavenly “salt” on critical issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, and more.
Thank you for helping bring the Good News of Jesus to our thirsty world through PowerPoint. I’m truly grateful!
