You Are The Salt Of The Earth.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men."
Matthew 5:13 NKJV

There is no Christian who is good for nothing. There is no believer in Christ Jesus who has no value at all. You can not carry Jesus and be useless. You are born for a purpose and you are a child of divine destiny. "good for nothing's" cannot be found in the house of God.

Jesus calls us the salt of the earth. Do you know the importance of salt? Salt makes food pleasurable but most importantly,  salt is used as a food preservative. If you want your food you stay fresher for longer, you must salt it. Unsalted food will rot and go bad within hours.

If we are the salt of the earth, it means that as long as we are here, the world will be preserved. With the evil that prevails in the world, it is Christians that are keeping the world from self destruction. When believers check out of this world en masse, the world will be uninhabitable. There will be tribulation of unprecedented proportions. We are the salt of the earth; we make the world, though sinful, habitable and life hereon enjoyable.

We have borne the image of the heavenly Man, Christ Jesus, who became a life giving Spirit. We are life givers. Give life to your family, community,  country and world. Preserve them. May those who ride the boat, airplane, bus or car with you be preserved from death just as Apostle Paul did, "But after long abstinence from food, then Paul stood in the midst of them and said, “Men, you should have listened to me, and not have sailed from Crete and incurred this disaster and loss. And now I urge you to take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’" (Acts 27:21‭-‬24 NKJV).

I am the salt of the earth. I carry the flavor of God and I season the earth. My family, community, country or world is preserved because of me. I make life enjoyable for those around me.
