What does it mean to be saved? What does it mean to be the Salt and the Light of the world? Well the bible says we are the salt of the earth, and what happens to salt when it loses its taste? Its no good. In fact, its just used to step on when it snows right? At least thats what we do with it!
Anyways, I just wanted to give a quick update and let you all know that I am alive, well, and I am totally revamping this blog! We have left the UPC affliated church, not because we do not believe in ONE GOD, or any other doctrine, but only because we will not follow condemnation from MAN, God brings love and light and we are called to be 'salt and light' to the world, not to bring condemnation to those that do no follow him yet. If we are to win souls, and thats MY goal, then we have to do it by showing our fruit. Showing that we ARE THE LIGHT, and by not losing the flavor of our salt ;)
Now, I get that the bible calls us out to be 'different', and 'set apart' from the world. And we should be. But does this scripture refer to how we DRESS, or our HAIR? or does it have something deeper, such as "being kind, being loving, showing mercy, showing grace, forgiving". You can dress head to toe in what your church wants you to in order to be considered "righteous" by men, but what is in your heart? Have you witnessed about Christs love today to anyone? Have you helped a stranger? Offered a meal to a needy person? Have you dined with sinners and told them of how God has changed your life? Or are you too busy worrying about how so and so cut their hair? Or maybe you are too busy on Facebook attacking those that are not living just like you.
Whatever the case, please know that Jesus came here for the SINNERS. He did not come here for the righteous, he did not come for those that have it all. We need to get back to being "apostolic" aka "apostle like". And that is what I will be doing and my new message through this page will be.
Also, I will be speaking about the healing journey from Childhood sexual abuse, and how the Lord God is the only thing that ever gave me my peace. New changes are coming so bear with me while Im under constructions. Also included will be snippets from my business, my newborn and family photography business, just images of my work and also my family; gotta have the personal things too :) I will be taking guest contributors as well. I want to write at least two blog posts a week for you all!
Make it your goal to share Gods love with ONE person today!
