Salt // 21-09-21

“You are the salt of the earth.” Matthew‬ ‭5:13‬ ‭NLT

Salt is made up of two elements, sodium and chloride. Neither occurs separately or free in nature, they were designed to be bound together, that’s how and when they find purpose. Sodium on its own is known to be extremely reactive and unstable, whilst chloride gives balance and regulation! It’s a bit like us, we weren’t meant to be found separate from God, that makes us highly reactive and unstable too, we were designed to be in relationship with Him, bound together with Him, bringing balance to our lives, and regulating what flows out of our hearts, that’s when we find our true purpose too. As disciples of Jesus we are not just sodium, we are sodium chloride, ‘You are the salt of the earth!’ Lord, as I cling to You, as I adhere to, trust in, and rely on You today, may I find purpose in being the salt you need me to be, seasoning, preserving, cleaning, healing, enabling grip, and creating a thirst for You Lord Jesus. Amen 🧂🙏🏼
