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
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
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.
