SALT (Matthew 5:13)(Mark 9:38-50)


SALT IS PURE

IF IT LOSES ITS FLAVOR

IT’S NOT THE SALT

BUT FOREIGN MATTER



WHICH IS WHAT JESUS SAYS

BE IN THE WORLD

BUT NOT OF IT



SALT ADDS FLAVOR TO FOOD

LIKE A CHRISTIAN

SHOULD AFFECT

HIS SURROUNDINGS



SALT IS USED FOR HEALING

WHICH IS A PRIMARY TASK

FOR A CHRISTIAN



SALT IS USED

TO PREVENT FOOD FROM GOING BAD

IT’S AN ACTIVE MINERAL

SO SHOULD WE



SALT WAS USED AS A SALARY

REMINDING US

THAT THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH

THE WAGES OF GOODNESS

IS LIFE EVERLASTING



SALT HAS BEEN USED IN BURIAL RITES

A REMINDER

OF THE GREAT PRICE

CHRIST PAID



SALT IS USED IN SOME RITES AT BAPTISM

AS A SIGN OF PRESERVING THE SOUL FROM SIN



SALT

SO GREAT A THING

SO SMALL A THING

LIKE GOD AND ME



COME FLAVOR MY LIFE

WITH YOUR SWEETNESS
