“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 by men.” Matthew 5:13
“In the same way let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
Keys to a deeper life sounds like I am going to give you three easy steps to having a closer walk with God. There is no easy steps to a closer walk with God. I hear it all the time, just come to Jesus and everything will be great and wonderful. Yes, my walk with God has been the most wonderful years of my life and the closer I walk with God the better it gets. The problem being, there is no easy way to have the deeper walk with God. It cost Jesus His life so we can have the victory and it will cost us also to have that deeper life.
The church of today has lost its saltiness. We are no longer the salt of the earth. I have prayed for revival for years. I hear other people say they are praying for revival. The meaning of revival is a return to life, vigor, or vitality. To have revival something must be alive. What we need more than anything else is reformation. The meaning of reformation is the act of reforming or condition of being reformed. Reform means to form again. To change your ways.
We need to look at what we need to do so we can have reformation in our churches. The reformation must start with our lives first. When our lives are reformed, then our churches and our community will be reformed. Jesus tells us we need to be a light in our community. Are you a light in your community?
I don’t have all the keys to a deeper life, but the Bible does and with the leading of God I will be writing on some of the keys to a deeper life.
