It's easy to become so saturated in selfishness and materialism that we’re in danger of losing our uniqueness in Christ. Are you losing your saltiness?
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. Matthew 5:13
Salt can be used in food as a preservative, but it can also make people thirsty and food tasty. Jesus said those who believe in Him are the salt of the earth; our function is to make others hungry and thirsty for Him.
Are you losing your saltiness? Today it’s easy to become so saturated in selfishness and materialism, so engrossed by entertainment and politics, so anesthetized by religion and tradition, that we’re in danger of losing the uniqueness of who we are in Christ. As a result our “salt” no longer makes people “thirsty” for Jesus or the things of God “tasty.”
When that happens, we desperately need to recharge our saltiness by renewing our personal knowledge of God, our passionate love for Christ, our practical devotion to the Holy Spirit, and our purposeful commitment to the gospel so that once again, we are salty believers.
Be the salty saint that you are!
