In these unbelievable times, it is more important than ever that we live out a life that brings about a thirst for the Lord in others. We must be the salt. Time is running out , and so many people need Jesus.
I won’t pretend that being the salt is always easy. Its hard not to get caught up in believing the lie that living like Christ is an unrewarded life. Perhaps it’s because not all of the rewards are tangible, and that can be hard to accept in a world like ours. Being the salt doesn’t always look pretty.
Some days it looks like being betrayed by someone we love dearly and showing mercy when we want to show wrath.
Other days it looks like pouring out your heart time and time again and not seeing or hearing even an inkling that it is doing anyone any good.
Then there are days when you see lives transformed before your very eyes because you’ve shared Jesus in some way.
There are even times you see revival break out, people healed, delivered and set free because you were the salt.
Sometimes it looks like an uphill battle.
But no matter what it looks like, don’t stop. Don’t be discouraged. Don’t lose your savor. Be the salt. What a high calling it is, and what a high price was paid so that we could be the salt. Don’t take it lightly. Don’t think you aren’t making a difference. People are watching. They may never tell you. You may never hear of how you’ve affected the kingdom. You may never see the lives you’ve changed. Be the salt anyway. You are making a difference for Christ!
“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.”
Matthew 5:13 KJV
