Salt of the Earth
by Randy Chambers, 2004-12-26
Matthew 5:13, NIV: 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 by men.
As salt, we are to add to what is around us. We are to be the seasoning for the worldblended
in, yet maintaining the Christlike distinctiveness, which can affect others we come in
contact with. As the New Year approaches, let us consider how we can abide in Christ, and
how we can be salt that keeps our saltiness.
