God Will Use Your Efforts to His Glory

Just a quick thought for you.

(Jesus said) “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its 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. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all 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 who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).

Considering this Word of God, it becomes difficult to deny that we are often the means by which God blesses the world around us. Why does this matter? Because not only does the text include you—that is, if you are a believer—but it encourages you to get in the game of life around you with the Gospel and to know that you are blessed as a servant of the One who fully intends to use your efforts in faithfulness, both in word and deed, to extend His kingdom to others in need for the sake of their salvation and His glory.

This truth in particular feeds me with hope for each new day, and it reminds me to remind you of the same so that you would share in that peace.
