Taste and See

Last week we learned that like beggars, we come to God with nothing and He fills us with everything. The foundation of our relationship with God is through Jesus Christ. By grace through faith we enter the Kingdom of God with nothing to offer. While many people spin their wheels trying to earn favor with God through good works, God invites each of us to a relationship with Him by grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Having entered the Kingdom, you and I are the first image of Jesus that others will see. We are His workmanship created to do good works. In Matthew 5 we hear Jesus’ words as He invites us to live in such a way that others will want to know Him. As salt and light in a dark and dying world, you and I are reflectors of God’s love. Will you choose to live in such a way that others see the saltiness and light of God through you?
