Shine Your Light in the Darkness

Without Christ, it doesn’t matter how much money people have or how good their jobs are. If they die without Christ, they die without life. Yet we still have to live in this world until Jesus returns, and while we’re here, we need to also be salt and light in our culture, just as Jesus commanded. We are responsible to recapture our society for Jesus, point people to Him, and promote His righteousness in society.
