“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.”

Matthew 5:13 NLT


In the above Scripture, God refers to the Believers as the salt of the earth. You know what salt is. You’ve used it plenty of times. Salt can be used for seasoning your food to give it flavor. Salt can be used to preserve food. Salt can also make you thirsty. God said that you are salt. You should have flavor. You should be preserving people from death. And you should make people thirsty for God. Let’s examine this carefully.


Salt is used to season food. It has flavor and it is good to taste. God said that you’re the salt of the earth. You should have flavor. In other words, people should be drawn to you. People should like to be around you. You should be easy to talk to. When you sprinkle your words on people, they should become edified. People should become better when they’re around you. Your flavor should rub off on them.

“Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you].” Colossians 4:6 AMP

As the salt of the earth, you have to build people up when you speak. You have to season people with your words. Impart grace upon the hearers.


Salt is used to save or keep food from decaying. It stops it from de-composing. Likewise, you should be saving people. You should be introducing them to Jesus Christ to prevent them from hell. You should be showing people how God can keep them safe from hurt, harm, danger, or destruction. You should be telling them about the Holy Spirit and how important it is to be filled with Him. People should not be suffering or decaying on your watch. How many of your family members are lost, and yet, you haven’t shared the Good News with them? How many of your coworkers need Jesus and you haven’t said a Word? How many of your friends are failing, because you haven’t shared with them the winning answers?

“When I preached in public or taught in your homes, I didn’t hold back from telling anything that would help you. I have told you everything God wants you to know.”

Acts 20:20 & 27 CEV


Have you ever heard of the old saying, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”? This statement is true to a certain extent. You can’t force the horse to drink, but what do you think would happen if you put a bunch of salt in his mouth? Do you think the salt would make him thirsty enough to want to drink? Likewise, you can’t make people accept Jesus. You can’t force people to get saved. But you’re the salt of the earth. You can be the salt that makes them thirsty for God. People should see your life and want to know more about Christ. You should live in such a manner that people say, “I want to know the God that he serves.” Or “Who is this God that keeps on blessing her?” You should make people thirsty enough to try Jesus. And when they get thirsty, give them a drink of living water. Give them Jesus.

“But whoever drinks the water I give will never be thirsty. The water I give will become a spring of water gushing up inside that person, giving eternal life.” John 4:14 NCV.
