I never experienced unsalty salt until recently – I had bought a box of it and used on it for way to long apparently because the last few times I used it bleh! It was pointless, useless, good for nothing. It also got me to thinking about the passage in Matthew about the salt and light. Was I still salty, I wondered. I hope so, I pray so. I live my life to serve the Lord, whatever he calls me to do, I pray I will always do it. It is why I teach the toddlers at a local church, a church I fear is lukewarm, fast approaching apostate status. I feel God has called me to be salty there, even though most don’t ant to hear it, see it, etc. I am salty in my teachings to the kids because if I am not then the seeds of God’s love, his deep abiding passion for us may not get sown. This church hardly mentions sin, repentance, salvation, it’s mostly feel good fluff. It’s unsalty salt. I just pray that through the position God has placed me in I can have some impact on the church as a whole. That salt and light will spread from me to the children then to the congregation.
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
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Matthew 5:15
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
