Salt is a preserver. We are the salt of the earth. The moral compass of the world. We are the ones trying to do the right things for the right reasons. But, and If, we lose that desire, how will the world see how they are supposed to act in matters of justice, love and mercy?
Have we lost our zeal and love and fervor for God and His righteousness? (Romans 12:11 & Galatians 4:18) Have we turned a blind eye to outward sins or even inward ones? (Galatians 6:1)
Let our hearts be right in Your sight. May we always seek Your will for our lives. Let not any extortion, oppression or self indulgence be found in us. Lord, I pray that we, the body of Christ, would humble ourselves in Your sight. Please reveal to us if there is any sin in our heart and cleanse us from it.
Help us to walk humbly in this world, by Your great strength and for Your glory, in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
We beseech You Lord, to open our eyes so that we would see the truth of Your word. Help us to apply Your word to our hearts that we might not sin against You. We desperately need You, Father. The world would have us to walk in a completely different way. We need You. We need Your direction. We need pastors and teachers who aren’t afraid to speak Your word with power and conviction.
While hanging on the cross, Jesus cried, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do!” (Luke 23:34) May His mind be in us, (Philippians 2:5), that we could and would forgive those who have wronged us. Also Lord, I pray, that we would do it immediately, without them even having to say they are sorry. Jesus didn’t wait for an apology and neither should we, who are in Christ.
May Your will be done in my life and in the lives of those reading and agreeing with me today. Open our eyes to see the truth as outlined in Your word. People can argue a lot of things but they cannot argue Your truth.
