Salt is a Very Good Thing

“You are the salt of the earth…” Matthew 5:13

I heard a song on the radio this evening pointing that out by with slightly different words. The lyrics said that we were peculiar. 2 Peter 2:11 states that we are aliens and strangers in the world. They’re all correct, like it or not. We are different. We are supposed to be different, not for the sake of saying, “look at me, I’m different” but so that others will “see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.” (2 Peter 2:12).

Here’s something to consider. I used to think, “with one billion Christians, why aren’t we making a larger impact on societies around the world.” My thinking is different now. “What would this world look like if we removed all the Christians from it? How fast would it deteriorate?”

Remove the salt from the world and it’s a completely different ballgame.
