## What Good is Your Christianity? Will the world be better today because of your relationship with Christ? Will someone be healed, saved, convicted of sin, or set free? Will someone at work or school or in your family thank God because of you today? Will you do something today that will cause people to stop and think about the eternal state of their soul? You’ve been given the treasure of life in Christ. What are you doing with it today? _Isaiah 42:6-7 “I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”_

1 Sarah R = "When Jesus talked about what it meant to be His follower, He didn't say, "Just be a nice person and go to church when you can." No, He said: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself'" (Luke 10:27)."Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23). "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35)."Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching" (John 14:23a).If we are true followers of Christ, our life should show it."
2 Sarah R = "We were GIVEN this treasure. We did not earn it and we certainly do not deserve it. As Paul said in Ephesians 2:8-9, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves - it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.""
3 Sarah R = "Note that the verse here is from the Old Testament. God's plan was always for the Gentiles to be included. He chose Israel just as Jesus chose His disciples, in order to invest in a small group that they might reach out to the world as a whole. Only Israel let their "chosen status" go to their heads and kept the light to themselves. Jesus confronted them about this repeatedly in the Gospels. "
