Are you a believer in Jesus Christ? Take a look at my new Bible study forum. Tell me what you think. By the way, anyone who tells me their personal testimony on how they became a believer this week will get 1000 gift points next week. This week's title is “Do You Believe?”. I will be adding a new Bible study on Monday, 3/8. Make sure you come share your testimony with me in the forum for 1000 gift points. I only have 2 so far. I plan to also make a group page for the forum over the weekend.

How many of you would also be interested in scripture writing, scripture memorization, and Bible quiz questions? Comment below and let me know.

Take Up Your Cross


Prompt:
Matthew 5:13
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.

Right after the beatitudes, Jesus says we are the salt of the earth. What does it mean to be the salt of the earth?

Answer:
According to dictionary.com, the definition of salt is a crystalline compound, sodium chloride, NaCl, occurring as a mineral, a constituent of seawater, etc., and used for seasoning food, as a preservative, etc.

I have heard different explanations for this. The common one I hear is that we are to be set apart. We represent Christ. We are a peculiar people. I am sure there is a lot of depth and different meanings that can be taken from this verse.

We know salt is a seasoning. I find it interesting that right after saying we are the salt of the earth, Jesus tells us we are the light of the world.

Matthew 5:14-16
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

I believe these verses all go together. We are to season the earth and to lead by example what it means to follow Christ. By being a good example, we are lighting the way for others.

Salt is also a preservative. We, who follow Christ, preserve the earth. We preserve it in a few ways. We preserve it through prayer, and by teaching future generations what is right and to fear God. We preserve it by fearing and honoring God. Can you think of a few other ways we preserve the earth? Tell me in a comment.
