“You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its flavour, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing, but to be thrown out, and trampled underfoot by men.” - Matthew 5:13
How insipid and often tasteless food can be without salt - it is a necessary ingredient to give flavour. Without those who are followers of Christ in the earth, this world would be in an even worse state than it is.
Daily the average person is feeding on a diet that is tasteless with regard to the nourishment of their soul. In 1952 I heard Billy Graham as he preached in a stadium in London, say, “You can pour all the wealth of the world into the soul and it would still be dissatisfied. You can pour all the popularity and fame the world offers into the soul and still it will be dissatisfied. The soul was made by God and only God can satisfy the soul.”
From Christ living in you emanates an aroma that will touch the lives of many. You can flavour their lives, as you come into contact with them, by your influence in word and deed. When Jesus Christ becomes a reality to them, they will no longer desire to satisfy that spiritual hunger within them with material things. Your witness can change and influence many lives.
Dear Father in the name of the Lord Jesus help me to make the difference in someone’s life today. Grant that through me lives can be pointed in the right direction.
