“You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It isthenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” Matthew 5:13-16
What is it that will be cast out and trodden under the foot of men? Is it the salt, or is it possible that Jesus is speaking about the world? If we as believers lose our preserving influence, then there is no other way for the Lord to save the world; men will dominate it. God flows through His people. It is not our own power that changes people. It's God's power in us but God will not do it without us - it is a partnership. Many people spend a lifetime praying for God to move, not understanding that He is going to flow through them. It is not God who is failing to intervene. It is God's people who are failing to cooperate and let Him flow through them.
Every Christian has God living in them. If you think about that means we are carrying around other people's miracles. If we fail to walk in the supernatural power of God, then someone may miss his or her miracle. We are God's salt to bring life to this dying world. Today, let us bring some savour to the world and let the life of God which is in you flow to someone in need.
