A Change of Approach

Sorry I didn’t post this earlier; this week’s been a funny one. Monday, I did some job searching and was asked for an interview. Tuesday, I had the job interview and was given it on the spot. Then on Tuesday evening I had a motorbike accident. Wednesday, I went to the hospital and got my left arm in a splint. Wednesday evening I rang the new workplace and lost the job. Yesterday, I was recuperating with playing a lot of Shogun 2 and then socialising with some mates. Basically, it’s been a manic one and I haven’t had the ‘head space’ to write this post. Anyway, here it is.  20141003_230929 Continue reading A Change of Approach

Matthew 5:13-16 (The Message)

Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavours of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.  Continue reading Day 9
