There is a local bistro that my wife and I love to go. Although food is great and they have this hot sauce made of guava, chipotle and other spices that it is awesome. It brings their great food to awesomeness level.
In some cultures spices, specially salt, are needed just to make certain foods eatable as well as to keep it from spoiling. thus is the power of spices, specially salt, it takes the basic, the mundane and even the un-eatable and makes it awesome.
Jesus told His followers, meaning us… that those who follow him are to be like salt. And He warns us that if we, as salt, lose our taste, we loose our usefulness and effectiveness (see Matt. 5:13 or Luke 14:34-35). Very strong stuff.
In other words, following the same metaphor, our lifestyle has to be such that has to have the preserving, transforming and healing properties of the salt. Are we? is it?
I think that our saltiness as believers start with trusting God with all our hearts, mind and salt. See for example Proverbs 3: 5-6:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
It is your saltiness as believers transforming everything it touches and making it better?
