Salt Of The Earth

Matthew 5:13
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 underfoot.

You are the salt of the earth. This is a statement of fact. We are to be what God has made us to be.

Christians are to take their stand for God in the society.
That stand for good renders society
infertile for the growth of evil and ungodly influences.

Christians are to live and work in places where their influence may be felt. The light that is in them can then be most fully manifested to others so that they may see that the light of real Christian goodness. It is a light not of this world but from God, and may in consequence be led to give honor and praise to its Giver.

Let us resolve to live our lives for Jesus in a way that will positively salt our community.

Help me, Lord,
to stand for the good
and be a salty influence for You
in the world around me.
