Belief and Unbelief - Part 2 Salt & Daily

Serving the Lord is a life-style, a way of life


Pss.1:[1] Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
[2] But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

[3] And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
[4] The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
[5] Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
[6] For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Prov.8 [34] Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.[35] For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.[36] But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

Pss.68 [19] Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

Pss.72[15] And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

Isa.58 [2] Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

Matt.6 [11] Give us this day our daily bread.

Matt.26 [55] In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

Mark.14 [49] I ws daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

Luke.9 [23] And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Acts.2 [46] And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, [47] Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Acts.5 [42] And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Acts.16 [5] And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Acts.17 [11] These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. [17] Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

Acts.19 [9] But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.

1Cor.15 [31] I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

2Cor.11[28] Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

Heb.3 [13] But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.



Matt.5[13] Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.[14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
[15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
[16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Mark.9 [49] For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. [50] Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Luke.14 [34] Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?[35] It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Col.4 [6] Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
