You got a mission.
“'You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? It’s no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.'" Matthew 5:13-16 (CSB)
There's a difference between talking the talk and walking the walk.
The group of people who tend to struggle with this the most is the Church. But we have a mission as the Church - YOU have a mission. It's not just up to the pastors or leaders in your church. YOU are the light of the world. YOU are the salt of the earth!
"As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at his tax collector’s booth. 'Follow me and be my disciple,' Jesus said to him. So Matthew got up and followed him. Later, Matthew invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. But when the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, 'Why does your teacher eat with such scum?' When Jesus heard this, he said, 'Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do.' Then he added, 'Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices. For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.'" Matthew 9:9-13 (NLT)
1. Your Mission: Follow Jesus into the Darkness
Are you going to walk through the doorway? Will you go to the darkest parts with Jesus to reach people? Will you follow Him?
2. You've Got More in You - So Let it Out
My City Church is not the light. Our Instagram is not the light. YOU are the light. The power of God is in you! In Jesus' name you are qualified to do whatever He asks of you.
3. You Got a Testimony
The story of how Jesus saved you is powerful. People need to hear your story. We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony! (Revelation 12:11)
You never know what is on the other side of your obedience.
