Salt Of Earth Light Of World

"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 by men. "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:12-17

We forget that we are free from sin and get caught up in bondage. We are FREE from sin, so sin will not prevail in my life! Praise you God for sending me this today through my friend! As I was reading 1 Peter last night the passage about being Holy stuck in my mind today, "Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming. As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” How amazing He is to me to instruct me and teach me when I veer off path. It is written that we purify ourselves by obeying the truth. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. I know He is right here in my very being, never leaving because He loves me and the plans He has for me have not even entered my mind. Thank you Father for your unending Grace, may I walk worthily in your presence!

I just ran across this quote a few moments ago:

"Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free." ~ A.W. Tozer

Wow... Its amazing how our hearts can easily mislead us. I love this quote, it really puts perspective on things because it really is that simple! I easily set my heart on "doing " before even seeking the Lord, thats my mistake that leads me back into bondage. "Let a man set his heart only on doing the will of God and he is instantly free." Anne you truly are an obedient woman! Thank you :)
