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 underfoot
When Jesus told us to never lose our saltiness; but He didn’t mean we should never use it! Salt only works when it comes out of the salt shaker and interacts with and changes the place where it is shaken. This Summer God has put it on my heart to pray for a way out of my salt shaker and into my neighborhood.
After all we want to be sure we are fulfilling Jesus’ prayer that we should be in the world…but not of it. We all need to be very careful of the easy tendancy to be of the world – but not in it! In the book of Acts, it was only when the disciples began to get out of their shaker that God could truly begin to shake things up. So who is ready to be shaken?
