This mug demanded so much time and prayer, that I was just brought to my knees in surrender! And now I couldn't be happier to FINALLY introduce to you, our Salt of the Earth Mug.
I imagine men and women drinking their first morning coffee or an afternoon tea or a late night cocoa out of this mug, as it subtly yet consistently reminds them of their identity in Christ. I imagine friends and coworkers noticing and asking questions. I imagine deep conversations arising about how Jesus is the only way to salvation and our only hope. I imagine sincere whispered prayers that follow, for the lost to be saved and for the Church to be strengthened.
Christians are salt and light of the earth, called to make God known in this fallen world. It is quite a burdensome challenge to think about, but it is also the only worthy task one could take on—because Jesus is everything, and He holds everything together in His hands. And with Him we desire to run the good race and fight the good fight.
If you are a believer, YOU are the salt of the earth. And we must all embrace the brevity of this life on earth—our lives are but a mist that vanishes (James 4:14). This makes our task even more urgent and that much more precious! Dear friends, we need each other and we need God to carry out the most beautiful mission...proclaiming this "gospel of the grace of God".
My prayer is that something as mundane as a cup of coffee or tea brings glory to His name, and that we would honor Him in everything that we do each moment.
For His glory,
