Salt and Light
13 “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 underfoot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

You are the light of the world
Romans 8:1-8 New International Version (NIV)
Life Through the SpiritTherefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sinand death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

Once we give our hearts to God, it begins a process of change inside of us. The inside change will reflect on the outside. Taking on the character of Jesus and living in freedom of sins. We don't need to live life with regrets, but grow from our mistakes of life. Only you can do what God has called you to do in this life.
I know people who replay hurts over and over again. They won't go to church because of someone or words spoken to them. If they could only see the devil wants to divine them from major connects. I have met the most amazing people at church. They have become real friends and I continue to meet new people. There was a time in life, when I didn't go to church either so I can understand why people stop. BUT ~ You can't let people stop you from the plan God has for you. Nobody is worth missing out on in life. Yes, please say the wrong things and they do things wrong too. Yet, people do that who don't attend church too. Let me just say that God wants the best for us. He wants to bless our lives and he wants each of us to make a difference in this life.
YOU CAN DO THIS ~
This life is a journey on earth and heading to a place called Heaven someday.
Let us remember to pray for each other, our family and friends. We need each other in life and we were never met to walk alone. Purpose this a good day, share hope and purpose to live in peace. You were created for this day to shine.
