"Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves,
and be at peace with each other."
Flavor…preservation…health! Is it any wonder God chooses salt as an illustration for the presence and work of the Holy Spirit in our lives? As we yield to His control, the flavor of our lives is enhanced; the full spectrum of our attitudes, motives and behaviors improves.
But when salt becomes wet, its flavor, preservative and nutritional power are leached away. Similarly, our lives lose the powerful working of the Holy Spirit if we allow sin to seep in and saturate our souls. As water strips salt of its very essence, so sin destroys the “abundant life,” diluting our effectiveness as ambassadors for Christ in our world.
GOD'S WORDS ARE LIKE GRAINS OF SALT IN A DELECTABLE MEAL...MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A HEALTHY PINCH EACH AND EVERY DAY!
