It’s always great to hear a sermon on a verse or chapter you’re pretty familiar with. I think God always has something new for us to hear, no matter whether it’s a Scripture or story we’ve heard 50 times or more.
Several weeks ago our Pastor’s sermon was on Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost it’s taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.” I have heard this verse countless times through other sermons, Sunday School, camps, Vacation Bible School…you name it, I’ve heard it.
As I was taking notes, one of the points Pastor Chris shared during the sermon, was “Don’t let your inability to do everything, keep you from doing something.” This really stood out, because a lot of times I feel like it’s impossible to accomplish anything for God, because I can’t possibly change everything. But this message reminded me that I don’t have to change everything. Any little bit of what I do for God counts. It’s worth something.
And I think, right now, Illustrated Faith is my something. Being a stay at home mom, I don’t always have a lot of interaction outside of my crazy kids! And when you ask God for opportunities to share with others, He always brings those opportunities to you, despite your circumstances. God is funny that way!! I’m glad He put this in my path and the chance to get to know and share with so many Ladies all around the world, some who I may have the chance to meet one day and some that will just continue to be my internet friends.
I hope God shows you what your something is, and that you can be the salt to those around you!
