Flavor To This Earth

 

“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)

 

A great warning from Jesus,

If we loose our flavor as salt

Of the earth, we will become

Good for nothing nobodies, unfit

For the Masters use.

 

He warns that we will not only be

Thrown out but will be trampled underfoot

By men.

 

This should put some wisdom in us.

God does not like people who give up

Or backslide and begin to march backwards.

 

Imagine beholding a grown up man putting on

Solders uniform,

Shouting hallelujah, glory to God, Jesus is Lord

and marching backwards. Instead of growing in

Grace and the fruits of the Spirit, he grows in sin

and depravity to the point of abusing and exploiting

his fellow brethren. Not a very wonderful sight – praising God

and hurting men not knowing that it is Christ Himself that

he is hurting and grieving.

 

And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, in as much as

you did it to one of the least of these My brethren,

you did it to Me.’ (Matthew 25:40 NKJV)

 

There is simply no wisdom

in grieving Him without remorse and praising Him.

No wonder Jesus said that it is not those who say Lord, Lord but those

who do the will of His father.

 

Not everyone who says to Me, ’Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven,

but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

“Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in

Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done “ many wonders in

Your name?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me,

you who practice lawlessness (Matthew 7:21 – 7:22 NKJV)

 

Brethren, we must wake up from slumber, the time

For childishness is over. It is now time for maturity.

The light of grace is still shining. Let us run under the

Light and make shelter so that we can be the true salt

Of the earth that will not loose its saltines and flavor.

 

Let us be flavor to this earth,

And spice it up so that we can draw men to Christ.
