Salt of the Earth


Jesus called us “the salt of the earth.” (Matthew 5:13, NIV).

Perry Bowers in the book “Each One Reach One” wrote that as “salt” we are to “1) Add the flavor of a Christlike life so others could get a taste of what it is like to know the Lord; 2) Make people thirsty to know God in order to quench the gnawing hole in their soul; 3) Become a preserving influence to curb the rotting effect of sin in our world; 4) Be a healing agent of His reconciling love.”

Now, on June 18, at 5:30PM, Makati Gospel Church will host a special seeker event titled “Money Talks!” Pastor Joby Soriano of Christ Commission Fellowship Alabang (who was a Harvard honor graduate) and I will speak on what the Bible says about our finances. We want people to “taste” the relevance of the Word of God, create a “thirst” in them to know more about God, become a “preserving influence” in the workplace that Satan is trying to corrupt, and “heal” people from the love of money. That’s why we are encouraging you to invite your colleagues, supervisors, managers or CEOs

But, to make this event successful, we need to work as a team. Don’t just leave the gospel sharing to Pastor Joby and me. Throughout the event, remember the acronym S.A.L.T.

Seek opportunities to share our faith to your invited guests.

Ask questions during the dinner what they think of the messages.

Listen intently so you can respond with God’s truth.

Talk openly about the Lord Jesus and the need to accept Him as Savior.

Remember, we need to work as team! Please give us the names of people you want to invite and we will give you invitation cards for them. (You may call Joyce at 816-0634).

May God work in and through us in this seeker event! God richly bless you!

Yours in Christ,

Bro. Eyriche Cortez
Associate Pastor, English Worship Service
