Be Active Salt

34 Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? 35 It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear. ~ Luke 14:34-35

So, what does all of that mean to us as Christians, the salt of the earth?

Well, like Potash-salt fertilizes the land and causes good things to grow, we as the salt of the earth should fertilize our small plot of the world, like our workplaces, our communities, our neighborhoods, our government, and cause good things to grow.

But instead of disinfecting the swamp, saltless salts facilitate the swamp and cause nasty infectious filth to permeate the whole world.

Pastor David Pawson said that statics show that in any community with 5% salt, the social trends reverse for the better, and it’s not by anything that the 5% is saying or doing, but just by being.

Now, if that is accurate, how much more could be achieved if the 5% salt influenced by doing and saying? Remember what Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Therefore, it is my strong belief that salt has to be an active influence. Jesus didn’t call us to separate us from the world; He called us to go out into the world. We have to be active in our communities, workplaces, government, schools. We have to be the change we want to see in the world.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Active Salt.
