Here are the verses we will be covering! Check them out before we begin. Don’t forget to pray first.
Matthew 5: 13-14:
You are the salt of the Earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled on by men.
Leviticus 2: 13
Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to ALL your offerings.
Whatever is set aside from the holy offering the Israelite present to the Lord I give to you and your sons and daughters as your regular share . It is an everlasting covenant of salt before the Lord for both you and your offspring.
Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt with IN yourself, and be at peace with each other.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your word and for allowing us fellowship with you through Jesus Christ. I pray that every eye that reads this comes to be more in awe of you. Prepare our hearts and minds as we approach your word.
In Jesus name,
