Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 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. Luke 14:34-35
Are you good salt? Jesus tells us, we as Christians , are the “Salt of The Earth” (Matthew 5:13) So what happens when salt loses its flavor or usefulness? And how do we apply this to our daily lives right now? Well as we know, Salt has many purposes, we use it almost always to flavor our food and we also use it to preserve our food, even today.
Jesus said “If the salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again” (Matthew 5:13) Jesus is saying if your Born Again, you can’t be Born Again again! You’re only baptized by the Holy Spirit, once. So are you producing fruits of the Holy Spirit? (Galatians 5) Or are you continually living in your sinful and wretched lifestyle? You’re either saved or you’re not. Once you are a new creation , you are now a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)
We are also to preserve justice and morality for society. Many of our laws are based off the laws of the Bible. Because the whole point of the Ten Commandments and moral law was to preserve justice and righteousness. As a Born Again Christian, the Law is written in our hearts (Jeremiah 33) We know right from wrong, and apply this to our daily lives and society. As Christians we need to preserve this justice and righteousness in our Church and our Homes.
When or if , Christians stop being the “Salt of the Earth” , Jesus says “It is no longer good for anything, and can be thrown out” (Matthew 5:13) We have jobs to do as Christians, to be the Salt of The Earth and the Light of the World. This is not an option, this is a commandment!
Jesus said “Let those who have ears, let them hear” , are you listening? Has the Holy Spirit enlightened you? Those who are dead in their sin can’t comprehend the Word of God, you must become Born Again to become the Salt of The Earth Amen!
