Salty Saints by Bufe Karraker on 8/6/95

August 8th, 2017

Rob Farnsley was a missionary from Northwest and Bufe starts this message talking about him.  Bufe talks about Enthusiasm in God.  He talks about spending time in prayer, serving, and giving.  Jesus was talking to a group of people in Luke 14 about Salty Saints.  Are you just a bland, mediocre believer or you a 'Salty Saint'?  The saltiness of life comes from the indwelling Christ himself.  We are to love God first, more than our own life.  The power to do that is in the cross.  The secret of the Christian life is in its impossibility.  It can only be lived with the power of Christ.  Also, count your blessings and then renounce them.  Follow God's plan and God's provision.  Without God we becme immobilized and never get into the battle.   Or do you make peace with intangling compromises in your life and forget who the general is in the war?  Have you only made it to the pew and personal salvation or have you become a disciple and made it to the war?

Luke 14:26-31, Philippians 3:10,11, John 15
