YE ARE SALT
Colossians 4:6 ” Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
The Scene: Salt-Himalayan salt (of a color other than white)
Salt is a preservative. If God’s people were withdrawn from the world, order would not be preserved. Preservative represents the good influence of His people.
Salt is necessary for our bodies to function properly; the brain will not work without salt. The human brain cells need electrolytes. Nerve cells are the electrical system of the brain and won’t work without salt. Salt ions are positively charged and cause nerve cells to open (send signals) to the body and throughout the brain.
Salt is a natural element created by God.
Salt controls blood pressure and blood volume. It is an anti-inflammatory when inhaled and regulates water content inside the cells of the body, where it cleanses toxic waste and manages cell metabolism.
Just like the human race, salt comes in many shades and is found all over the world. God’s Word says His people are as salt, but comes with a warning:
Matthew 5:13 ” You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.”
So God’s people are told to not let worldliness creep into their lives lest they become corrupted. So it is important that true believers of the Word pay attention to all we take in via the media, thoughts from either God’s Spirit or the enemy of our souls, and the people with which we interact.
Just as natural salt, we, God’s people, can contribute to the good health of the world through our actions and words. We are as salt.
