The Gospel – Full of Salt Power.
In the Bible, we find a remarkable testimonial about us, the disciples of Jesus. The Lord says that we are salt of the earth. That doesn’t mean we will eventually become salt but that we are already salt of the earth here and now.
You are the salt of the earth.
Salt preserves food, preventing spoiling and rotting. In the old days, salting food was a very important method of preservation. Salt was indispensable, because anything salted would not rot and go to waste. It was valuable and desirable to everyone. Salt is also vital for life. We now know that not a single cell in our bodies can function without salt. That’s why, in the Bible, salt stands for being life-giving, enduring and protecting. In other words, when Jesus tells us that we are the salt of the earth, He is speaking of the vital life-preserving, protective power of salt. God’s people are like salt for the world – indispensable and life-saving.
You and I are salt of the earth and we put this principle into action to lead people to Jesus. This task has been given to all of us, because the Gospel is full of life-giving “salt power." 2018 will be another great year of harvest. This is God’s will for sure. He is the Lord of the Harvest, which needs to be brought in to prepare for His return. It is our calling to concentrate on it being endued with the power of the Holy Spirit. In 2018 determine to be salt in your own small way and see what God will do in the lives of many and in yours. If we are being the salt then we can expect fruit from our faithfulness. The New Year is a perfect time to repent and let God have your best for His glory. This is our commission and in His strength we will experience this reality.
As a ministry we cannot do it alone. Such a great task can only be accomplished together. We need you! We need your prayers and we need your financial help. Ahead of us lie strategically important preparations for Namibia 2018, as well as further campaigns in Navrongo (Ghana), and Delta State (Nigeria). We’ve taken on a great deal of work in the next few months, so we’re especially grateful right now, for every helping hand of support. Thank you so much!
Thank you for your part in this soul-winning ministry of Jesus Is Lord Crusades.
A blessed New Year 2018!
Together with you in Jesus,
