A DISCIPLE IS SALTY

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
(Matthew 5:13)

“Your blood pressure is too low. When you feel dizzy, just eat a bag of chips.” Not exactly the advice you would expect from your cardiologist, but hey – it was the silver lining in my dark little diet. His recommendation had nothing to do with eating potatoes. It had everything to do with the salt. The sodium raises your blood pressure back to a normal range. Can you imagine what potato chips without salt would taste like? I’m not sure I’d be so excited about following my Doc’s instructions. Jesus wants us to be salty – not too much, but to have the kind of flavor that causes people to want more. We are to be seasoned in such a way that we make people thirsty for the Living Water in us. But if we have no spiritual salt in us, then it’s like eating a bag of saltless potato chips – nasty. Be salty!
