3. Open your heart to praise the Lord
I say to the , “You are my Lord;
“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
Jesus reminds Israel of God's salvation plan through this image of salt and light. God had called them to be the salt of the earth, to keep the world from going bad; however, they did not listen and obey, and became salt that had lost its saltiness.
God called Israel to be the light of the world to shine their bright light to the world but they did the opposite thing in bringing darkness to the world because they left the true light, God Himself.
To live out our purpose as God's people, we need to be salty and bright, and lead other people to be salt and light.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to shine brightly and enhance people's lives like salt. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
Reflect on these questions:
2. The second function for salt is to enhance the taste of food. How does that apply to your life? Do you have any recent examples?
3. Are you in light or in darkness recently? What is the secret to prevent ourselves from going into darkness? How can you bring more light to those people close to you?
1. Would you describe your own role in your family as salt and light? Why? If not, how would you describe it?
2. How can you bring more light and joy to your family? How can you be salt to prevent relationships from going bad and to bring out the goodness of your family members?
