TODAY'S DEVOTION:    july 01, 2020

Reflection:

On the Independence Day, consider the question, How do you use the gift of freedom?

God gives all believers true liberty through His Son Jesus Christ.

Do you squander that blessing or share it with others?

The problem is, some people are so focused on their own needs and desires that they fail to impact even their closest neighbor.

Think about the people you see every week.

  • Do you know how many of your neighbors are sick?

  • Are there people in your church who struggle to make it from day to day?

  • Do you know if any of your coworkers are going through hardships?

Most likely, there are individuals all around you who could use assistance. But being self-focused limits our ability to notice those people, let alone reach out to them.

Jesus taught His disciples,

“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.”

(Matt. 5:13).

In order for salt to remain useful, it must maintain its purity and potency.

Likewise, we must endeavor to lead holy, humble, and loving lives, focusing on the Savior’s will rather than our own. God has prepared the good works that we are to walk in (Eph. 2:10).

Our job is to choose to do so.

Whether or not we affect our world positively depends on the focus of our heart.

  • Do you look inward to consider how you can do more to get ahead and add to your lot in life?

  • Or do you look outward and think about ways that you can do more to serve others?

Prayer: 

Lord, l had been spending time and attention to my needs and had forgotten that there are people around me who are in need of my help, love and attention and most of all salvation. Thank you for reminding me that every Christian has responsibility and accountability to his neighbors in the sight of God. Lead me to someone everyday Lord. I pray to You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

13. 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.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV)
