Ye are the salt of the earth; but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Jesus Christ is providing parabolic teaching to His disciples as it relates to spreading the gospel message of salvation to a lost world. Christ uses a common household product to make His point of believers the salt of the earth.
Salt as a seasoning commodity adds flavor to our food for better taste when applied. As believers witness Christ to a lost world with truth, grace and through the power of the Holy Spirit then the word becomes a seasoning as a delicious meal. The Holy Spirit convicts the hearts of the hearers so they too will come to Christ adding to His church and God's kingdom.
The more the world is seasoned with God's Word it becomes a place of peace, where truth abides and honesty prevails that leaves no room for corruption. Brotherly love is an example of believers seasoning with salt. This is because love conquerors all. It conquered death, hell and the grave.
Abiding in God's Word believers season this world with salt and is less likely to be trampled under the foot by an ungodly society.
Believers, we are the salt of the earth left here to shine bright the light of Christ and His righteousness; therefore, keep seasoning the world is waiting.
