YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH!
You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men (Matthew 5:13).
The usefulness of salt can never be over emphasized. Salt seasons and gives flavor; it preserves and also has the potency to destroy bacterial. When Jesus Christ said that you are the salt of the earth, He was referring to the fact that as a Christian, you are supposed to be seasoned and bring flavor to the lives of men. You have the ability to preserve the earth and destroy the powers of darkness that rule the earth. The Lord expects every Christian to be the salt of the earth.
But if a Christian who is supposed to be the salt is malfunctioning and deficient in his duty as the salt of the earth; therefore, he has failed in his duty and becomes useless in the society. Of course, if the healer now needs healing and the deliverer now needs deliverance, the purpose will be defeated and the hopes of men will be dashed. A Christian should never allow is salt to be useless and trampled under foot by men. Salt in the life of a Christian is the only ingredient that preserves him from defilement and corruption in the world.
In fact without you as a Christian, the earth will be salt less. You are not replaceable and the earth needs your existence to function and remain victorious. That is why the Bible says that greater is He that is in you than the one in the world (1 John 4:4). You are the carrier of God’s glory and virtue. The beauty and fragrance of God radiates around you. You are too loaded to fail and be crushed in life. Every Christian should endeavor to always preserve his salt in life through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Daily Tip: A Christian who is the salt of the earth seasons the life of men by preserving the goodness of the Lord and destroying the forces of darkness forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us (2 Corinthians 4:7).
