Matthew 5:13

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.


Ever had a craving for something salty? You storm into the kitchen scavenging for the nearest item containing salt and devour it in a rage of hunger. Maybe it's not that bad, but sometimes our bodies need salt and we develop a craving for it.


Salt is used for the regulation of acidity in your body, blood pressure regulation along with water, and balancing sugar levels. Twenty-seven percent of your bones are actually salt. Needless to say, salt is extremely important in your body. Sometimes you can have a salt deficiency which affects many different areas in your body.


In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us that we are the very salt of the earth. Matthew Henry said in his commentary on the Scriptures, “Salt is a remedy for unsavoury meat, but there is no remedy for unsavoury salt.” If we lose the antiseptic and remedial qualities of the Gospel in our own lives how can we affect anyone else with the Word of God?


We have to remain as savory salt and live according to the Word. We have to live as born again Christians in the power of God in order that those around us would desire the salt of the Word.


Are you salty? Do people desire to be like you and drink from the well you are drawing from?

We want to live such Light. He said, "Ye are the salt of the earth." "If the salt has lost its savour," that's its strength in the Gospel. We should have something moving in our churches, that Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, and all of them, would long to come. We should be so salty! Salt makes thirst, creates a thirst. Salt is the savour, if it contacts. It's got to be contacted.
