Super Pure and Light

by Beth Bondurant

Grand and promising commercials will run all during the Super Bowl game... costing an estimated $3 million per 30 seconds of air time.


Every possible unique and creative way to "sell" a product will be displayed in hopes of catching the eye and pocket book of billions of people all gathered to watch this one sporting event.


Yet, none of these super ads can possibly direct us to anything that comes close to God's goodness and grace... freely traveling across the air waves ... penetrating the spiritual atmosphere and surrounding our heart, mind, body and spirit. 


"Let me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?  You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill."


BE AN ANTISEPTIC FOR THE WORLD SO OTHERS CAN SEE GOD.  Salt purifies... and we oh so need cleansing of our thoughts, words and deeds so our lives point others to God's truth and light. 


PRESERVE GOODNESS AND KINDNESS AS YOU GUIDE OTHERS.  We see that it takes only a moment for us to turn away from God's goodness and grace... allowing chaos and calamity to prevail.  Become an example of gentleness and self control.


TASTE AND SHARE GOD'S LOVE AND LIGHT.  Bring flavor to those around you in your own God gifted unique and savory way.  Like the rainbow... God-colors splash the wonder of forgiveness and grace in and around every storm.


O God... I want so much to make a difference...I truly want to point others to God's presence and peace... healing and hope... love and mercy but sometimes godliness is the last thing that is projected from my daily lifestyle and conduct.  Instead of offering welcome hands of healing and forgiveness... I advertise a certain product ... a specific place or definite plan that is essential for one to "buy".  I pour all by energy and effort into devising a perfect program with finely chosen language and objectives and exclude God's power to move ... restore... transform every living being... in the blink of an eye.  Forgive me, O God and open my eyes to the mystery of your unconditional love mirrored in all that is super pure and light.
