Being Like Salt to the World

Hi, thanks for stopping by.  I know you must be new here, because I am new. Please check out

You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall it's saltiness be restored?  It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under peoples feet.  Matthew 5:13

God's word tells us that we are the salt.  We have to remain salty or we become no good.  We will be thrown out and trampled under peoples feet.  I have always read this verse, understanding that God is calling us as believers to be different. Christians must bring flavor to the world.  The flavor is Jesus Christ. 

Yesterday while I was driving my daughter to preschool, we were listening to her bible songs cd that she got from church.  It's one of her favorites so it's usually on heavy rotation.  I love it because it's a great way for her to learn God's word, and she just loves singing out her praises to God.  I'm so used to hearing it over and over, that I have come to the point where I sometimes  block it out(you know how us moms do?)  

Today was a little different.  I happened to be listening, and something caught my attention.  Between the songs they have interludes.  The woman on the cd was speaking about us being salt in the world.  She then said, " Salt makes us thirsty, we must make people thirsty for Jesus."  I don't know why I never thought of it in this way before, but I guess God had revealed it to me.  It was so simple, but all of a sudden it made sense to me.  We must be like salt to the world, so people can be thirsty for Jesus.  In the word we learn that Jesus is the living water.

But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.  The water that I will give him will become in him  a spring of  water welling up to eternal life.  John 4:14

The only way that we can make others thirst for God, is being thirsty ourselves.  We must desire to be like Christ, to live our lives according to His word, striving each day to draw closer in our relationship with Him.  Once we can live our lives in this way, others will see something in us that they desire.  They will thirst for what we have.  

This lesson of being like salt can apply to our marriages as well.  We should desire to bring flavor to our marriages.  Often we can allow our marriages to become bland.  We must be the salt in our marriages that cause our spouses to thirst not only for us, but most importantly, for Christ.  Be the example in your marriage that allows your spouse to draw closer to Christ.

How are you salt in your marriage?

Do you desire to be salt to the world?


  1. I have never thought about salt making people thirsty either but it's so true. Don't just love how we always constantly seeing God's Word in new ways.

    1. Yes I definitely love how God teaches me something new each day, and he uses simple everyday experiences. I guess He knows that's the only way I'm going to get it. Lol!!!
