I'm glad you joined me today I'm glad for this opportunity to join you before we open up the Bible Let's pray together Father in heaven thank you that we can come to you in your wood and know that you will speak to us I pray that as we look into the Bible we be blessed and we hear your voice and that you draw us to yourself in Jesus' name we pray Amen you know salt has been very important and down through history in times when it wasn't plentiful it was very valuable I read where at one time so was traded for gold in the early 1800 soldiers was 4 times more expensive on the American frontier than beef Roman soldiers were on occasions paid in salt in fact that's where we get the word salary from from Sol the Latin for a salt sell it to that's another word we get from salt comes from the practice of putting salt on a few vegetables salad it literally means salt it. There are many good reasons why Salt is a good metaphor for Christians One is that sold is necessary for a person to live sold is made up of 2 chemicals sodium and chloride sodium helps carry nutrients into your body's cells it also helps regulate your blood pressure and helps your nervous system transmit messages the chloride is used to make stomach acid to help digest food and kill off harmful bacteria so the soul that Jesus was talking about in the Bible is something that was essential necessary helpful even life sustaining God puts the Christian into the world as salt people need water we have what Christians have so that they can live if you've got no salts you die there are several different kinds of salt not all soul is created equal Real Salt is salt in it's purest form such as sea salt what you buy in the supermarket is typically refined salt and refined so it's pure a while refined salt has additives in it that are said to make it more palatable you know you could say that about Christians there's no question God wants his followers to be pure unadulterated unmixed with any of the junk of the womb Jesus said nothing was an Israelite in whom there was no guile It's when the Christians dots putting in additives that the purity of our experience and therefore the power of our experienced is compromised. One of the characteristics of salt that best represents the Christian is that salt is a preserve a tive when they figured out that salting various foods caused them to last a long time a whole new world of exploration opened up as no you could take food with you that lasted for ages salt preserves and Jesus that we as Christians. Or in pot preserving quality to the world around us let me read to you from the Bible this is Matthew chapter 5 and we shall pick it up in. What do you think which Dr 13 Jesus said you told of the earth but of the salt loses its flavor how shall it be seasoned it is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by man he goes on to use a very similar. Illustration similar but different he said You are the light of the world but here. You are the soul to the use you to add flavor to the will you to be a preserve the tive in the womb. You see God's purpose in sharing his grace upon us the so that we can we can then be agents in saving others God hasn't just chosen us so that so that just we can be saved but also that through the believe might receive the grace that brings salvation in John 17 Jesus said that he sanctified himself so the we might be sanctified through the truth in the same way a person who has claimed Jesus as Lord and Savior will presume this rather will pose this saving qualities that SUV to preserve the world around or him. You August sold of the Jesus said so keep in mind the right amount of salt is good too much salt is offensive Jesus didn't say you are the chili powder of the salt if you get too much salt which is very easy to do You could die as a result of that it's very common for a person's blood pressure to rise even to dangerous levels because of the consumption of salt 3 quarters of the soul to person consumes typically comes from Proceso foods and often when you wouldn't expect it bread breakfast cereals cheese cookies often loaded with salt experts will tell you that you need no more than a teaspoon of salt a day it's easy to get that much by the time breakfast as I remember a time many years ago my little niece was staying at home she was a little at the time now she flies in the Air Force she's not so little now she is literally a high flyer but when she was alone flying she mistakenly put salt on her breakfast cereal when she thought she was adding sugar My goodness you should have seen her reaction the look on his face was something I have never been able to forget and something frankly I don't want to forget too much so is gross I'm sure everyone has cooked something at some time when you've done the salt and it becomes offensive keep in mind Jesus says you're the salt of the earth if you want to be the salt of the Earth remember that the right amount of Christian salt is absolutely good and necessary but when we of the do it that's when we can get offensive. When you're discussing the Bible or sharing your faith a witnessing in some way it's good to know when to pull back and let the Holy Spirit do his job so that you're not just pouring on the salt and becoming offensive I don't to scare you into into not saying anything but Jesus Trust me most of us are in no danger of overdoing it but an obnoxious Christian an offensive Christian augmentative Christian can drive people away from God That's too much salt often spouses get too much salt colleagues can get too much salt the badge of Christianity is not merely an outward sign it's not just the wearing of a cross or a crown the badge of Christianity is that which reveals the union of a person with guarded no other influence that can surround the human being has such power as the influence of an unselfish a life someone once said The strongest argument in favor of the gospel is a loving and lovable Christian. We both know that what's so does one of the things it does is it adds taste we want to keep in mind that for it to do any good at all so has to be mingled with the substance to which it is added It has to penetrate and infuse before it makes a difference it was often my job growing up in the family home to peel the potatoes and put them on to boil and I did not do this very often but there were times I forgot to soap the potatoes you knew right away the so set literally in a big container on the back of the stove on the back the back of the stuff. The soap was need of the potatoes but if it didn't get in the potatoes it didn't help and then if you put it in you of course wouldn't want to come down on a corner of the pot you would want the soul to mix up and get around in the same way it's through personal contact and association that people are reached by the saving power of the Gospel we don't say people and groups people are saved as individuals personal influence is power if we want to see people say we need to come close to people if you want the tomato sandwich to taste good you don't just pot the sandwich near the salt shaker and hope for the best it's good when God's people make friends volunteer participate in community events because with the salt of the earth is not because you want to become like the world and there's a line here somewhere that you don't want to cross but as so we men go with a purpose with a nation as you are at work interacting with unbelievers when you're at the gym where. You want to be looking for opportunities to share Jesus they all come up and you can be the salt of the earth you know something there is a need to be intentional I read where Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people when you hear that you're sort of pick up the say via mingled with men as one who desired the good he showed sympathy for them ministered to their needs and won their confidence and he bade them follow me it's important that we come close to people by personal if it. I asked a couple of people recently what they thought were the keys to winning people to faith in Jesus they said you know mostly the most important thing is being friends with people you're the soul to the Earth you've got to mix up you've got to add flavor people who would look with those of other faiths will tell you relationships consider this with me let's say you're wondering how to witness to someone of a of another faith not a Christian someone of a completely different faith background what do you do you rush up with the Bible and say he is why you ought to follow Jesus Well there are times that you can gently suggest those things but if you don't know that person and you've identified them as being a non-person a non-Christian I beg your pardon Why would you why would they even want to listen to you build a relationship get to know them friend of mine told a great story his parents were hippies they worked in a health food store a man used to come into the health food store and he by his Spirit only from them only from them if someone else was on a checkout he had one around the store white only even come back later why was he doing that he didn't know those people but got it put it in his hot to build a relationship with them so before long he learned their names he found out something about him they learned his name they became friends as friends can as friendly as friends can be when you're going to check out between you and they came a time that he asked them about their spiritual beliefs would you like to come to these meetings would you like to attend the seminar Yes We would it wasn't long and they were holding meetings wanting people to Jesus Christ they were sharing they fight they still are today. Soul to be mixing up relationships you know it's important it's important to find points where you can agree with somebody someone doesn't believe in the divinity of Jesus Lythgoe talk about it discuss it Little someone doesn't believe what you believe about the commandments don't make it a hill on which somebody must die if someone believes differently to you about the 2nd coming don't take offense that will be taken care of later on you build their relationship and you have the opportunity to really share about the things that matter most when you get into discussions with people don't be repelled or repulsed by the differences they she asked him about those differences then anyway the salt in pot 8 preserving quality imput flavor and improved taste mix up Jesus said you other souls of the earth my brother has been involved in Personal Evangelism ever since he became a Christian he's been established or rather he's been involved in the establishing of 4 new congregations back that I mean we didn't even call him church plans back in those days he says one of the most important things in effect of Personal Evangelism is to be a real friend to people let me give you an example he and his wife working with the couple the husband had been a big time methamphetamine dealer while he was selling drugs his family had plenty of money and they wanted for nothing after they came to Christ they had nothing so my brother and his wife essentially provided them with everything they needed so that the family could celebrate Christmas as a family you think that kindness paid dividends Oh yeah my brother accompanied the man to court acted as his advocate interesting at one important hearing that my brother decided to attend one of the key decision makers in the courtroom that day I happened to know my brother well through a church connection and of course that had an effect in the way the man was treated. You think that man the former drug dealer and his wife were grateful to my brother yes they would you think that made it easier for my brother to have Bible studies with them Oh sure it would they baptize yes they would How do I know that because I baptized them they were sweet committed Christians which reminds me don't be discouraged by what you see as hopeless cases I was one of those and yet the Lord one me there are a lot of the hopeless cases just waiting to be pointed to the Lord Jesus Christ Jesus said You August salt of the earth my own family we had neighbors one time across the street from where we lived we had prayed Lord bring us someone to share Jesus with then along comes this family covered in tattoos the man was and the reason I mention that is it was covered in tattoos and this was really before it was fashionable for every white and every grade school teacher practically to have a tattoo or multiple tattoos he had that he had a daughter in law and all the way around his neck and right in front of his throat he had the words tattooed cut he. Not the most savory sort of tattoo and you must admit that man authorities a hopeless case but we were able to mingle with them as though we desired the good we hadn't opportunities to minister to their needs we dry their laundry not dry and I showed up in court with the man we took the children to church. Those things spoken loudly to the neighbors. You want to be the salt of the earth let me share with you the main the 1st thing prayer if you want to be the soul of the earth the 1st thing you want to remember is Priya it is in there it's to pray God moves Hodson oncet a prayer he does great things and in praying about this you can go to gotten ask him to bring people to you to whom you can witness and with whom you can share Jesus when we moved to one certain part of the country my wife Melissa mentioned that she would like to have someone to bring to Jesus so we prayed as a family it wasn't long after that Melissa bumped into a woman who recognized her she had attended a church where I had preached she attended church very sporadically when she met my wife Melissa and instant bond was formed she asked her about her walk with God then offered to study the Bible with it and that's exciting we honest God specifically for someone we could share Jesus with and gawd provided So consider what else Jesus said in Matthew $513.00 not just that with the salt of the earth but he said if the soul has lost its sultanas it isn't good for much at all in mock Jesus is have sold in yourselves and Luke Jesus says that unsold he sold isn't good for putting on a dunghill God calls us the salt of the Earth but it's evident that in order for us to fill the role God has for us we need to be Solti we can't be so if we're not Solti Simply put you count shit jesus is if you don't have Jesus we can't share what we don't have but you know something if all the oceans of the earth dried up they would leave enough salt behind to cover the continental United States with a layer of salt one and a half miles deep there's plenty to go around. Not much danger of running out of Salt Now let me share something with you the a to z. or the a to zed. Sharing your faith in Jesus Ok if you want to teach somebody the alphabet what later do you start with you start with the little watch That's correct. After a you teach your kids a x. A Q No what letter a then Ok b. But why do you go from a to b. is be better than q.. Is be better than x. no. Is be better than enough I mean it's worth more on a Scrabble board but it's no better Aletta you would probably use more of those than you use b.s. but that's and make the a better it just makes it different so after I say you're teaching a child the alphabet you know a m y c j No you go a b help me out now a b. c. keep going d. I don't want to challenge you because we're getting deep into the alphabet now but we've gone a b. c. d. and then want easy That's correct I have faith in you I think if I kept on going with us we could get all the way down as it without too much trouble a b. c. d. e. f. g. y. because that's. The alphabet isn't Ok so let's consider some Bible teachings and ask ourselves what letter of the alphabet they would correspond with let's think of. Salvation. Where would salvation through Jesus come if if the teachings of the Bible would letters of the alphabet a would be ally salvation through Jesus would be saved maybe at sea because perhaps perhaps. The inspiration of the Scriptures would be a I mean I'm not looking for definitive here we just are on some things around here so salvation through Jesus that to be a b.c.d. some way down there sure it would and what about Revelation Chapter 13 and the teaching of the last a deception that's going to cause multiple multitudes of people to be lost and they'll be persecution in Earth's last days where would that be is that a to hear some people talk that's a b. c. d. and d. but over it really where is it would it be would it be Zed z. not probably not easy to be using w x u v somewhere down there right sure it works so why in the world would you when you meet somebody. At a shopping mall and your shopping cart actually bumps into them in the supermarket Oh I'm so sorry how are you doing oh good I'm in a hurry I'm go to church oh you go to church I want to show you something Revelation 13 mock of the beast push inclusion of God's people oh. Now granted they may be times when the Holy Spirit says you need to talk to this person about this maybe but those times are the exception and not the rule you are the salt of the year do you accost somebody and tell him that they would shipping wrong or. Something like that you put away the salt and you brought out the ghost peppers the boot What's that one the boot you're lucky that the thing like a jillion times more potent than a jalapeno. Why you then. Why would you stop the How about you start. With matters of faith with the Scriptures with the Bible I know sometimes we feel like I went out again and we've got to get on with the big stuff the big stuff will take care of itself you get to that stock by building bridges not wharves stock by making connections dumping disconnecting that's really important you understand it's really important what sort of teaching of the Bible. What happens when you die is that a that's not a is it xiv that's not as either a little further up than Revelation Chapter 14 that would maybe be oh I don't know maybe it's a j a k n l n m somewhere in there you see what I'm saying you think about the teachings of the Bible you don't want with the wrong thing going to start with the right thing and the right thing is always Jesus no what we just looked at is not scientific it's just a good bit biblical sense and you'll apply the act the right way given the context in which you can minister. Look for opportunities to share your faith you realise that they're everywhere my brother moved to a new city and they did not have a car so he would take the bus to work and you know what he did oh here's what he did before he got on the bus that 1st day he prayed he said Lord I believe there's someone on this bus that you want to share that you want me to share my faith with I believe there's someone here on this bus you got on the bus to look for a cd set down next to a lady he said good morning and she said. And so he said Ok and not him most likely got off the bus got on the bus the next day I didn't. Set up here good morning there was no way that wasn't working out the next morning he sat down next to some guy good morning good morning you know you. A receptive individual it least willing to talk he didn't pull out his sharing book and say Here read this about the mark of the beast he said How you doing what's your name this is my name we're going how long you lived here see you tomorrow yes I'll be right here tomorrow they said on that bus together every day my brother is praying Lord shown me the way to this man's heart give me an opportunity to share my faith with him one day he's sitting there and his friend says I watched a television program last night about the universe the planets the sun the stocks My brother had been praying Lord my brother said Did you ever wonder who made those things and this guy said yes yes yes I have wanted to do a Bible study was point and they began to get together every week they had Christmas dinner to get that the men gave those hot to Jesus chose to be baptized and studied his way all the way devout of Christ Jesus said you are those salt of the earth so let's be the salt of the earth and look for opportunities to share our faith let me ask you a question what does it say when we don't share our faith let me share the story with you I was watching this online sort myself. I guess depending on the circles in which you move a well known entertainer his name is Penn Jillette he's part of a duo called Payne and Teller and I believe they have a show in Hollywood where they've been appearing for you know Hollywood Las Vegas have a show in Las Vegas and they've been a peering there for a long time Mr Gillett is an atheist like an evangelist of the atheists hard core of fully paid up atheist. He told the story he told about how one night after a show in Las Vegas he was shaking people's hands at the door of the theater and he noticed a man sort of loitering looking Whiting it was clear that the man was waiting to be laast when everyone else had gone the men stepped forward Mr Gillett shook his hand I just want to tell you how Fang full I. Was a great show. And then he said after exchanging some more pleasantries understand you're an atheist Yes yes I am I'm quite the atheist he said I have something for you reached into his jacket and pulled out. Bible he said I'd like you to happiness inside you find my home number on my I don't know cell number my page you know my every other number I can think of if you have any questions please get in touch with me please it's interesting what Mr Juliette said later he said I admired that man he had something that he really believed in and he wanted me to have it so he shared that with me and then he said this he talked about people who believe that they're going to go to heaven while other people are going to go to hell and he said if we were standing on a street and I saw a car or something coming straight for you there would be a time if you weren't stepping out of the way that I would have to tackle you and I'd get you out of the way and then he said How much do you have to hate someone to not proselytize this is an atheist speaking how much do you have to hate someone to not share your faith if you thought about that. Do you really care that you're going to go to heaven to walk on streets of gold when a guy cross the street is going to perish in a like a 5 2nd mattered to you if it matters to you something's got to go due to go out of your way and somehow endeavor to share your faith just going to say no anyway you know that for sure as God told you that if he says No Anyway you have shared and then you pray you pray and you shake you pray and you ask God for an opportunity of prayer you said thought I'm willing to go show me where to go and then you go how much do you have to hate someone to not proselytize this question another important reason to act as the salt of the unity a wise man once said to me that a pulling horse doesn't kick. And if you're pulling if you're doing the work if you're working working for Jesus didn't go to mean time in your life a kicking there just isn't there is you show me a church that's torn apart and I will show you a church that's not focused on mission it's just that simple reveal a church that's going down the drain that's shrinking with this infighting and you've revealed a church to me where people are not focused on the work that God gave us to do Go therefore and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and I am with you always even unto the end of the world Amen you know what someone once said when churches are lifted to inactivity satans sees to it that they are employed that's a fact Ok Romans Chapter 10 let's turn there Romans Chapter 10 and we're going to pick it up in verse 13 Romans Chapter 10 I think on their i am starting in verse 13 the Bible says for whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved how they and shall they call on him and whom they have not believed and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not good and how shall they hear without a preacher and how shall they preach unless they are sent as it is written How beautiful the feast of those who preach the Gospel of Peace who bring glad tidings of good things and then verse 17 says so then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the wood of God How shall they hear unless somebody tells them we are called to be their soul to be. And remember when away witnessing when just working with Jesus Jesus didn't call you to call to make something out of nothing that's his job but he calls us to work when he is. Working I was in a beach town for work and we're at the beach in the water number of us a friend's wife was there she was a surfer and I asked her about surfing she was endeavoring to teach me to surf but that was a hopeless endeavor if ever there was one I said What's the secret to surfing she said it's this all you have to do is catch the way. That's what we've called to do as Christians catch the wave find out where God is working. With him when you're sharing your faith you're working with Jesus working where he is working you never ran ahead of Jesus unless of course you were told not to and then you did when you were sharing your faith Jesus had already been there when you shared a tract a Bible study an invitation you had a conversation turned in a spiritual direction Jesus had already been working we would look where he is working now think about this fishing I used to live near some of the world's very best trout fishing I was not a fisherman then and I'm not a fisherman now but I had a lot of friends that were very keen fisherman and here's what I found out there are different for catching different fish depends on way you fish depends what the weather is like what the water count is like whether there are rocks present lots of different things what time of day you change. You use based on these conditions and what type of fish are looking for when you're witnessing you change your approach depending on a variety of factors you must if you insist on using just one approach you'll catch far fewer fish maybe maybe you'll catch no fish or sharing your faith would change your life remember what Jesus said. You the salt of the earth we want to be the salt we want Jesus to use us Ok let me go through some things here just go quickly if you want to share your faith if you want to be the salt of the Earth what do you do you pray prayer prepares your high and God uses print to draw people to Christ be sure you have a regular devotional time assess your current friendships do you have someone in your life already you could share Jesus with it's a good idea to seek to cultivate those types of friendships for him to become a chaplain just so he could share Jesus at the military base near his son that was Saul reason become a chaplain so we could share Jesus with people that he otherwise could not get to look for spiritual interest in an individual intentionally build relationships be intentional about sharing Jesus in your community now that might be complicated for someone who wants to remain unspotted from the spoiling influences of the world but there's no way around it to reach people you've got to go after people you've got to go to with the people some places you just don't go but people pray specifically for opportunities to share Jesus that's a huge pray that God will bring Bible studies to you pray that God will bring needy people to you they're always there there are people everywhere wanting to go to heaven they would go if only someone would show them the way there are people everywhere who wants to understand the Bible if only they had someone to help them understand the Bible my friend was at a hotel he told me the story about 3 days ago and he was talking to a lady and she brought up something of a spiritual nature and she said he said would you like to study the Bible yes he gave her some it is written bible study guides and he said Now look I need you to know these kind of talk about some of the prophecies in the Bible some of these studies get into the prophecies and she stopped it was like she'd seen a ghost or something simple want she said I was praying this morning. That God would send somebody into my life that would help me to understand the prophecies of the piple and there he was with Bible studies it is written studies dealing with the prophecies of the why he prayed that day God bring me somebody God did you want to be prepared to be a little bold be prepared to take some risks if you have the right questions to ask you can get away with being direct a good friend of mine he was with a woman I knew and we were talking and he just sits so tell me how are things with you and God How about that he didn't say oh you're saved he didn't say you must believe what I believe he didn't argue doctrine with how are things with you and God about that opened up a conversation wonderful conversation recently I met a lady at a big convention or can't meaning she told me I was the 1st pastor she had ever heard preach I wondered how that was her dentist told me that after many years he finally got the courage to show my evangelistic series D.V.D.'s in his waiting room when people are being baptized as a result about that he finally decided I'll share this and she's good and we met and she's not safely in the arms of Jesus and the me encourage you to do this be sure to share Jesus one mistake often made is when people think they need always to share some challenging doctrine of the Bible the Bible doctrines are vitally important we don't want to be without them. But there's such a need to share Jesus Christ and His love it's crucial Jesus is often neglected when it comes to witnessing and when you want to share your faith listen listen listen listen and listen listen to people they often have struggles they want you to hear about sometimes it's baggage sometimes there's pain being carried that's clouding a situation. We invest in people by listening and when it comes to listening listen to what people are saying many people don't listen or they feel they don't hear what others are saying if you're talking to someone about the commandments in the person you're talking with mentions how is wife will kill him if he keeps the commandments you want to hear that knowledge that if the guy mentions going to a church school or to seminary or to the listen here those things don't miss what people saying it's important commitment to the mission and the message of the church is so important Simply put if you're not sold on the product you're not going to be much of a sales person and I hope you don't mind me putting it like that people who aren't confident in the message of the church simply aren't effective in Personal Evangelism because I don't believe that you can't share the Bible if you don't believe the Bible it's important to have a theology that compels you to share your faith with others and be prepared to invest in people there isn't such a thing as drive through personal about Angelus and sharing Jesus with people takes time let me share with you one last story Remember what Jesus said you of those souls of the earth and we want to be salt of the earth I was in an airport waiting to catch a plane and a man bumped into me literally I was moving this way he was moving that way but he said Oh I'm sorry I said Oh I beg your pardon I'm so sorry he said oh that's no problem I said How are you doing today he said I'm blessed blessed by the Lord placed I thought Ok I'll play this man's game I should so why you placed he said oh it's because of these kids he pulled out his cell phone and showed me pictures of what were very obviously his 2 grandsons he said I'm so blessed because they are praying for me. Yes it is that right he said yes and it's because of their prayers that I'm still alive well what are you going to say next you have to say Tell me more he'd hooked me you know it's because of the prayers of my beautiful grand boys that I'm still alive I said Well how was that he said I had a terrible heart condition and I almost died and I was rushed to the hospital not believe I'm alive today because people prayed for me including my grandsons and then he did this reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a piece of folded up like you know like not by 11 paper folded in folder he said he has the story right here whole story and he gave that to me because why because when he started his day he said I need to take my testimony with me. And look for people to share with and he did and God brought him someone to share with that was ne and I was blessed by the encounter and of course on there was a story and a little appeal to give your heart to Jesus on there was a place that you could go online to get more resources he started the day intentionally witnessing he believed that he was the soul to be you that he being called by God to be the souls of the earth and how was it with you how it was that with you we sometimes say Oh I couldn't share jesus why because I don't know enough you know enough you know Jesus that's enough but I might get asked a question I don't have the answer to has that never happened before didn't you kids on ask you didn't your friend asked you didn't you teacher ask you a question that you didn't have the answer to What did you say. And then you might have said but of find out. What you say to somebody asks you a Bible question I don't know but I'll find out then you get on the phone to a friend or someone in church of the pastor Sadeq I got a question here you see we say oh no I share my faith and no one ever responds when you know that you don't know what happened years later. Not everybody responds immediately oh I don't think I can ever get it right where you just get it and say lol this is all I know show me how to do my best but this is all I know how is it working out for you that man left his house that day determine that he would she had Jesus with somebody God gave him an opportunity and so he did about the next time you leave your house you leave determined to she Jesus you pray that God will give you the opportunity he will be prepared carry some tracts over the pocket books of Bible studies or testimony or. Something to say in behalf of Jesus a sharing can. Pray Lord today can you bring me somebody to share my faith with can you give me the intelligence to know what the awareness to know that this is an opportunity for you bless my going if it's Lord. Would you bless me to be the salt of the youth come on let's pray to that he in right now a father in heaven you've called us to be the salt of the earth and of course many of us we look at ourselves and we say. Oh that's so far above me I'm not telling to enough gifted enough trained enough. But today you remind us that we are all of those things because we're just sharing Jesus would you place our if it's would you bring to us somebody that you want us to share with would you give us enough courage to open our mouths to share attract a study to something and then Lord water those seeds that are sun so that in the too many there would be fruit for your Honor and Glory grow us grow your church bless us thank you that you've called us to be the salt of the Earth we know that with God all things are possible and we thank you today in Jesus name. A main thank you so much it's been a pleasure to share dog's wood with you looking forward to seeing you next time until then God bless you.
