"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." ESV
We are all aware that salt is used primarily to enhance the flavor of food. It's more important use is to prevent spoilage and rotting. Pure salt has abundant flavor and preserving properties. As Christians, we are the salt here on earth. We have been touched by God and made pure by the blood of Christ. Just like salt, we have to have contact with an intended source in order to be effective. Our lives should be lived so that the rotting and decaying of this world will be delayed until all hear the Gospel.
Heavenly Father, oh how we fail to stay focused on the crucial principle of living so that the world will hold together until everyone has heard the Gospel. Help us to restore our flavor and effectiveness so that we will be useful for Your kingdom. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
