Dear Covenant Church Family,

For the Lord’s Day 4.9.17

Dear Covenant Church Family,

Jesus said to His followers:  “You are the salt of the earth.”

“Salt does no good at all if it has lost its saltiness. Only when it is salty is it effective. So, if we are those in whom the Spirit of God has worked to call us to faith in Jesus Christ, we must really be Christ’s people. It must be evident that by his grace we are not what we were previously. Our values must not be the world’s values. Our commitments must not be secular commitments. Our theology must not be a decimated theology. Rather, there must be a new element in us and, because of us, in the world.”

– James Montgomery Boice, Foundations of The Christian Faith, InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, Illinois, 1986, pp. 687.
