We bless the Father of Glory for another wonderful week He has given us. The week is so promising as we are going to study another topic that will add more to our values and personality. Salt Of The World.
Salt is a natural seasoning use in giving taste and flavour to food and also a preservative in keeping food items for future use. In addition salt is a drying agent. All these are whom we are in our various spheres of life.
Jesus during His living on earth ask is disciples if they know who they are in the world. He make it know to them explanatorily that they are salt of the world. Meaning they are expected to add value to the world not to confuse the world.
This morning we start with the case of Joseph who dreamt about the future and was conspired against so that his vision will not come.
15. When Joseph’s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us back for all the wrongs we did to him?”
16. So they sent word to Joseph, saying, “Your father left these instructions before he died:
17. ‘This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.’ Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father.” When their message came to him, Joseph wept.
18. His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. “We are your slaves,” they said.
19. But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God?
20. You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
21. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children.” And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them. Genesis 50:15-21 (NIV)
After the conspiracy against Joseph many years after his dream came to pass. Your dream shall come to pass in Jesus name. Amen. His brothers who conspired against him remembered their action and convicted themselves for their deeds. Your adversaries who had one time ago judge you shall remember their judgement against you and condemn another for their deeds against you in Jesus name. Amen.
Another wonderful thing here is that the dream of Joseph became a reality because willfully submitted to him and handed over themselves to him. Your God-given dreams shall become a reality in Jesus name. Amen. Whatever that has lifted it self higher that you shall become subject to you willfully in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Joseph was destined as a salt to add value, preserve and save and be they pride of the family and many others but his people never wanted that but all turned around to become good for him. So it become of you in Jesus name. Amen.
Brethren you are the salt of not just your family bit of your entire generation, I pray God to keep watch over you to fulfill this in Jesus name. Amen.
Good morning and enjoy the new week.
Prophet Johnson Oluwagbenga Adeniyi.
