Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? -- Luke 14:34
Look out across Utah's Salt Flats -- plenty of salt, but what good does it do? Salt that just stays on the flats can't season my cake or your casserole. As long as the salt is all in one spot, it can't preserve your pickles or my olives. It can't do what it is supposed to do because that salt is somewhere it can't be used.
If we are the salt, are we where God can use us?
Are we spiritually maturing so He can teach through us? Or are we stuck in a sin that keeps us from fulfilling our purpose?
Are we seeking Him so we can serve in the strength He provides? Or are we grinding it out in our own effort and ignoring the One Who makes us able?
Are we living out the faith of Jesus Christ for our neighbors? Our co-workers? Or are we pretending at church and hiding in the world?
We are the salt. Together, we fulfill our purpose when each of us is fulfilling God's calling as individuals to be salt. And salt is good.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
