The last word…

If you knew the words you are speaking to your loved one, friend, family, neighbor, enemy or even a stranger, would be the last words they heard, would you really continue saying what you are saying? Or would your words be different?

Seasoned saints–The importance of salt in your life–Part 3

Happy New Year Family!!!🎊 I trust your holidays were blessed and you are enjoying the gift of a new year. A couple of posts back, I started a “salt series”. This entry will round off that series by exploring why we need (more) salt in our lives. While, I am not into resolutions, I think this may be a good area for all saved folks to gain more knowledge and strength in, myself included. Let’s dig in! “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men” (Matthew 5:13 NKJV).

That chapter outlines detailed instructions on how sacrifices had to be prepared to be given to the priests and then offered to God.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men” (Matthew 5:13).   Hey family, The Lord blessed me teach on salt at church and I thought I’d share (in a condensed version) what He gave me with all of you in a blog series. In Matthew 5:13, Jesus compared His disciples to salt. Why salt? Let’s start by taking a look at salt history of salt and why we need it in our natural bodies and in The Body of Christ. Salt comes from the ocean, and the salt water is usually channeled into smaller, shallow pools of water. The wind and sun evaporate the water and as the salt crystallizes, it is, in some cases, hand-harvested by sauniers. This labor-intensive process can sometimes take up to five years to complete! Salt comes from the Latin world salarium, which means payment in salt and where our word “salary” comes …
