Am I salt?

BethanySMC - Thursday, 1 December 2011 07:00

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Mat 5:13

 While teaching his disciples, Jesus made such a statement, “you are the salt of the earth.” It is obvious that these words should not be taken literally. To be salt of the earth, speaks of our purpose here on earth. For the common people, salt is known for seasoning and preserving food, as well as balancing the fluids in the body. Although there are a lot of types of salt known in modern science with various chemical elements– something makes salt salty and useful in 14,000 places. If you remove some of those elements, you don’t have salt anymore but a useless form of the real thing with no power, no taste, and no practical use.

 Such strong analogy that Jesus made makes me think, Am I salt? Do I have power on this earth within me to make a difference? Have I made any difference lately? Am I a real Christian who lives and breathes by the word of God, obedient and consecrated, filled with the Spirit of God? Maybe I just have the form of godliness with no power in my life: useless and tasteless?

 This world is spoiled and rotten and millions of Christians who consider themselves the salt of the earth have no power to make a difference. Why? To truly be salt on this earth takes more than confessions. It takes character, dependability and steadfastness, firmness in beliefs and determination and loyalty to the word of God. Modern day Christianity lacks much of it. The truth is compromised, many follow their own agenda, and words of Jesus do not mean much for many “believers.”

 Oh God! We need revival and where we all become salt again! Let us be a generation that has power over sin – people that know God! Pour your Spirit Lord, we need your anointing that breaks the yoke of bondage, heals the wounds and restores true Christianity in our days.  Let us rise up with an uncompromised life and a message of the gospel to make a difference on this earth.

For your glory oh, Lord. Amen.
