Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth.”
Salt, as ordinary and plentiful as it is, possesses a very special and unique power when added to foods. Unlike any other seasoning, salt unlocks the subtle flavors, enhancing and bringing new sensations to our taste buds. When our Lord says to his followers, “You are the salt of the earth,” He is urging them to go into the whole world and enhance the good that He is doing so others can be touched by the power of the saving grace of God. As followers of Christ, our ABCUSA congregations are the salt of the earth, seasoned with the love of the gospel and called to carry that love to all the earth.
The 2018 World Mission Offering season is focused on three Ministry Priorities:
- Health and Wellness
- Abolishing Global Slavery
- Economic and Community Development
While this does not include all the ministries of International Ministries, these serve to illustrate some of what God is doing worldwide through our 120 global servants, 900+ volunteers, 43 home staff and 240+ global Christian partners.
Our congregation’s gifts to the World Mission Offering powerfully connect us to all of the global servants and ministries of the Lord through International Ministries.
Let us pray for our global servants and give sacrificially and generously to the World Mission Offering as the Lord Jesus leads us to give. Thank you!
