Jesus made a statement that the American church should consider. "You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless." (Matt. 5:13, NLT).
While many Christians are in an uproar about the Supreme Court decision that same-sex couples should have the same legal rights of marriage as heterosexual couples, how many are on their knees confessing the sins of the American right? Could it be that the decision of the Supreme Court is a result of the failures of the American church to fill its ordained role of salt and light in every community?
What about you? Have you considered what Christ expects from you as you go about your daily life? Jesus continues His work on Earth through His people. Are you worthless? Or are you the expression of God incarnate in your community?
