Dotes from Charles Stanley:
“We have an obligation to impact the people around us.”
Matt.5:13-16: “…you are the salt of the earth. …you are the light of the world. ”
“We have a responsibility to impact people just like salt impacts food and light impacts darkness. Jesus wants us to make a difference in the world around us. It doesn’t take much for us to impact someone, just like it doesn’t take much salt to affect food.”
Are we going to stand up and be salt and light for God? Salt creates thirst, so your impact can stir interest in another’s heart. When we sin, we lose our power to impact people for Jesus.
“John 9: “When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When I go, you are the light of the world.” “Without Christ, a person is living in darkness. Light shows the way, reveals truth that we couldn’t see in the darkness.”
************ “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIGHT.” **************
“Do not compromise the convictions in the Bible—TRUTH. This cuts your light down so low, it can’t be seen. Jesus died for His convictions about us. He stood up for us. “
Jesus died for His convictions about us.
