“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost its 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.” Matthew:5:13

 

Every christian is a salt of the earth. Salt adds flavour to something. Salt signifies life and restoration. More so, we’re the salt of the earth not the salt of the church. You see, everything a Christian is, iis not primarily meant for the church, it is meant for the world. We cannot be fervent Christians on Sunday alone and put off our spiritual fervency after Sunday church service. It is our responsibility to add flavour to the earth.

 

Adam sold the sweetness of this earth to the devil in Eden but with the power of the Holy Ghost, Christians can stand to add flavour to the earth. Those who refuse to add flavour to the earth lose their saltiness. They eventually join the group of persons they’re supposed to bring to the light of Christ. We are Christ ambassadors on earth and we must live as one.

 

This saltiness that we posses isn’t strictly for church affairs. We are the salt of the earth. We’re called to be salt in the business world, political circus, educational sector and in any environment we find ourselves. If we sit back segregating our spirit filled life to certain sector then we are like some salt complaining about a tasteless soup. We would also be limiting the work of the Holy Ghost in many sphere of life. You’re supposed to add flavour not to complain about the lack of salt.

 

In conclusion, the Christian is so powerful that not a multitude of them is needed to effect change in any place. For instance, you cannot use a bag of salt to cook a bag of rice. We cannot use the same measurement of salt for equal measurement of the soup. A Christiannpossesses enough power needed to cause change. The amount of tastelessness cannot be equal to the amount of salt needed to quench the tastelessness. A thousand Christians are too much to change the world with such tremendous power a Christian has. Only Philip took over the city of Samaria, only Paul and Silas turned the “world” upside down (Acts 17:6). You’re too big to be troubled by anything. You’re a salt. You’re God’s perfume, make God smell good. Diffuse his love in every place. Don’t stop adding godly flavour where ever you go. Blessed are you.
