Every day, you should be conscious of the need to revere God and pray for his will to be done on earth. This kind of prayer will light up your spirit and help you serve as the salt and light of your world. If God’s will is done in our communities, we would see the effect. It would mould our religion, culture, economy and governance. As Christians, we have been given authority by Jesus, and it is our responsibility to use it in the way he intended. You must learn to be concerned about the state of affairs in your community.
In Matthew 16:19, Jesus tells us, “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Christianity is much more than a moral code for daily living. You have to also understand Christianity as a call. A call to self-sacrifice and service. In addition to working to improve the lives of others. Jesus has delegated certain powers to you. Use the keys at your disposal to influence your world. Pray for the betterment of your world. Grow beyond your own selfish desires and problems.
Let us walk in the footsteps of Christ and strive to make a positive impact on the world around us. This is possible through our prayers and actions. Jesus calls you to be a salt and light of your community. You must learn to work together with others to make your world a better place. Personal ambitions without regard for the community’s collective good never end well. You pray about your personal problems on a daily basis, and societal issues become an afterthought. Keep a watch over your world. Become a watchman. May the Lord find you dependable in your day.
