Advent Devotional – Saturday, December 31, 2016 – New Year’s Eve – Let Your Light Shine
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5:13-16
Being a Christian in today‘s society is not an easy task. We are tempted through the wrath of Satan in our daily lives and are either set upon a path to destiny or a path to destruction. We must choose to seek the light of faith and walk with our Heavenly Father in our times of doubt, worry, struggles and trials.
Christ made us the salt of this earth and if we lose this salt (our faith in Christ) then how can we be made salty again? We can do so by leaning unto Him, trusting in Him, and believing in His word.
Thank you for taking this Advent journey with us here at Central United Methodist. It was a true blessing to prepare this booklet. We thank Christine Aley for all her help in putting this devotional together. We could not have done it without her!
