Seasoned Greetings by Teri Johnson
Tis the Season for God’s Seasoned; to release Seasoned Greetings!
According to Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven” And despite of the world’s circumstances, we must not grow weary, for we are promised a harvest with a reward.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart”.Galatians 6:9
GOD'S SEASONED SAINTS
God’s mature Seasoned Saints must bring forth words filled with Life, for the needed healing of our nation and all the nations. (Rev 22:2) This happens for some on a grand scale, but for most, it is simply engaging with the one person you cross paths within your daily walk.
We are Salt of the earth Matthew 5:13
A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, And a word spoken in due season, how good it is!
The Lord God has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned. Isaiah 50:4
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Colossians 4:6
I’m reminded of Norman Rockwell’s famous painting of the old Sea Captain, his arm on the shoulder of the young boy, looking out towards the ocean and the horizon. An “Old Salty” according to Webster’s: Someone who has sailed for many years, and they tell tales about life. An Old Salt is also called: True Grit.
Jesus is our Captain, the Ancient of Days. We are His Old-Salty-Seasoned-Story-Telling-Captains! It’s a now season of embracing others with love & healing, helping them embrace their true-grit identities, with direction, vision and hope for their life.
For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. Hebrews 2:1
He sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20
ARE YOU WORTH YOUR WEIGHT IN SALT?
You are exceedingly far more worth your weight in salt by the Gold, He has placed inside of you. You have the pleasure to tell others & help them discover the gold buried inside of them too!
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
THE CAPTAIN'S LIBERTY BELL
Tis the Season for Seasoned Greetings! You are God’s Seasoned-Old Salty-Ones that will ring in the NEW with our Captain's Liberty Bell!
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised Luke 4:18
