Manna For Today: Wednesday, April 27, 2016
Matthew 5:13 – 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.
Being salty empowers certain abilities for believers. Consider the following:
1. Our preserving ability.
• The source of curing/warding off rot and decay.
• Ten (10) salty people could have saved Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19.
Proverbs 14:34 says, “Godliness makes a nation great…” Another way to say this is, “Saltiness makes a nation great.”
2. Our penetrating ability.
• It penetrates and engulfs whatever it touches.
• A little has a great impact.
Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. We can be a force in our city, state, country and the world.
Think about these two abilities afforded to salty people and ask God how you can use these abilities in your life today!
Peace and blessings!
