Grace Leading

From Matthew 5:13-14:  “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored?  It is no longer good for anything but is thrown out and trampled under foot.  You are the light of the world.  A city built on a hill cannot be hid.”

Life’s human experience

Never-ending shortcomings

Darkness follows every step

Hearing its constant drumming


God’s Word shatters evil’s myth

Called to His righteous standing

Light shines with divine goodness

Offering safest landing


God’s eternal promises

Resurrection defines hope

Faith growing, following Christ

Scaling each slippery slope


God’s faithfulness never tires

Jesus fulfilling His law

Holy Spirit reaches out

Teaching, transforming life’s flaws


Kingdom of Heaven beckons

Earthly journey will be hard

Grace leading, trusting each day

Laying bricks toward God’s courtyard

From Matthew 5:19:  “Therefore, whoever break one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

  1. Richard, I love both scriptures you used from Matthew. The journey may get hard at times, but with God’s grace leading the way, we shall overcome. We are the salt and the light of the earth, and if that salt has lost its savor, we simply cannot keep His commandments or teach anyone else to keep them. That is a sobering fact we will be called the least in the kingdom if we lose our way.
