"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?" Matthew 5:13
"We are the Salt of the Earth" ever heard that phrase? Do you know what it means? What is meant by the fact that Christians are the Salt of the Earth? and are you a Salty Christian or a Saltless one?
SALTY OR SALTLESS
To be "Salty" is doing what is right ALL the time. No matter what. Saltless Christians are the ones who compromise. Don't compromise your Godly beliefs for anyone or anything. The SPIRIT will wait. God designed it that way! It is the FLESH that CANNOT wait. And as a Christian you must remember that we are to DENY the FLESH daily. Your ACTIONS dictate your HEART. A Godly Heart will NOT do things that God would NOT do.
Remember if you are a Christian then you represent Christ. Make sure that whatever you do, you would be comfortable signing God's name to it. No christian is better than the example he or she sets. Be bold and stand for your Godly ethics. If others are Godly then they will back you up, if not then they do not need to be in your life.
"Then God said 'Let us make human beings in out image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.'"
God made US the ruler of the world and He will not go back on His word. But we have to be able to claim that Authority...and the only way we can do that is to truly walk with Him and be Salty.
Dear Lord we pray for the boldness and strength to keep ourselves within Your standards. That we keep our saltiness so that together we can be the Salt this world truly needs. We pray that you allow us to touch the lives of those we meet and that they will truly see YOU in us and the Light that You so brightly shine.
Till Next Time
