The Salt Of The Earth

Did you know that salt is a compound consisting of sodium (which is a metal) and chlorine (which is a green, poisonous gas)? If you were to walk into a room full of chlorine, you would be dead in just a moment.

If you were to ingest either sodium or chlorine alone, you would die. And yet, God, in His infinite wisdom and creative chemistry, has put the two together to form sodium chloride. We call it table salt and it is necessary for life.

I think of what God has done by the chemistry of the cross. How He took that deadly part of my nature and made something new out of me. He has even given me a new name, just like sodium and chloride gets a new name called “salt.”

Jesus said, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13). How are you living your life today?
