“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.”
Salt has an impressive list of uses and benefits! It has antibacterial properties, makes food extra tasty, and is a preservative. There are thousands of parallels that can be drawn from the salt analogies. Ultimately, salt cleanses and purifies. In a world so stained by wickedness, Christ is the salt preserving the very fabric of society. We get to be little pieces of Christ himself all over the world! Our "saltiness" is the Spirit of our living God. Without Jesus, we are nothing. How can we bring heaven to earth if we don't have a relationship with our heavenly father?
"WITHOUT JESUS WE ARE NOTHING."
LORD, thank you for preserving your people. Your steadfast love never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for the gift of your Son, who reconciled me to you. As I know you more, would you teach me to look more like you? Please preserve my saltiness so that the world may get a taste of who you are.
