YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH by Dr D.K. Olukoya



FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:1-13


MEMORY VERSE:

Matthew 5:13 "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."


PRAISE AND WORSHIP


MESSAGE:

Christianity is not a religion but a way of life that stresses the assimilation of the heavenly culture as exemplified by the life of Jesus Christ. It is noteworthy that the primary focus of Jesus in His great teaching in the Sermon on the Mount as recorded in the Book of Matthew is to emphasise the quality of life every believer must strive to imbibe as a matter of necessity.


Christianity is about character. Such character is founded upon the principle of life and the Spirit of Jesus Christ. There is an event contrast between the prevalent character and dispositions of the Jews and the Kingdom character Jesus wants His disciples to embrace. The Jews had serious moral lapses and deep spiritual infirmities. The disciples were not to be grouped together with the Pharisees and other perverted people of their generations; they must be people with divine character mode and must see themselves as the salt of the earth.

Why did Jesus choose the imagery of the salt? Why are you called the salt of the earth by the Master? Salt is a seasoner of great value. You can imagine what any food without salt will taste like in the mouth. Salt sweetens and improves the taste of any meal it is added to. Salt also preserves and prevents rottenness. Salt also aids the healing process of certain ailments.


It then follows that you, as a salt of the earth, must always try your best possible to impact your world positively wherever the Lord will graciously place you in life. You must bring healing to the embattled souls around you, sweeten your world with the aura of the life of Jesus you are bearing, preserve godliness and reverse moral decadence wherever you are.


Jesus lived a life of undeniable impact during His earthly ministry. He added colour and taste when the marriage feast at Cana Galilee was going to flop. He raised the son of the widow of Nain to life and ended mourning in the city. He brought joy back to the family and neighbourhood of Lazarus when death snatched him untimely. Jesus taught us how to be salt in our generation. May you not lose your taste in these perilous times, in Jesus' name.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:

The only relevant vessels to God's purpose are salted Christians.
