How much salt are you worth

Updated on November 14, 2012

It is worth salt

In Jesus’ time salt was a very valuable commodity. Worthy white slaves in Russia were worth a lot of salt. That is where the term worth his salt came from.

When we become Christians do we not make an agreement that Jesus is our king and does that not make us servants of God? As such, do we not each have a part to serve our king? When we are serving Him is that not done as an offering to Him?

So could Jesus’ meaning be that when we are fulfilling our part in Gods kingdom we are worth a lot in His kingdom.

Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.Leviticus 2:13 New International Version

When we just sit on our butts doing nothing we are like useless salt?

When Jesus’ mentions that when salt loses its saltiness it is thrown into the streets to be trampled on, can that mean that if we refuse to use the gifts God has so graciously given us, will the Holy Spirit depart from us and we are left at the mercy of those living in the world (which is very small isn’t it?)?

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. Matthew 5:13 New International Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (The Lord our maker) for molding me into Your child. Please Holy Spirit guide so that not my words (not my will but Thy will be done) fit my actions. Guide me into service in Your kingdom to do the work You have predestined for me to do. I ask this in the name of He who followed Gods will all the way to the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Good morning onlinewealth.

      Yes it is important to stay on the path God has chosen for us.

      Good morning Michale.

      Yes many times I am left in awe when I see the results of when we give even the tiniest ministry to others. That tiny seed many times sprouts more beautiful flowers that than big ones.

      Good evening teaches (I will change the time for your greeting just for you little sister).

      I am sure you bring much life giving flavour (Canadian spelling not U.S.) to many hungry souls.

      May the sweet melody of Jesus' love sing in your treasured hearts.

      I think about this statement, and I pray that I will not be found without flavor in my walk. Thanks for the reminder of our purpose in life.

      Always worth the cost to use our gifts and talents for kingdom purposes. We're also left in awe whenever the Lord does use us to minister to others. Great reminder to remain salty!

      With the analogy of the worth of Salt, it is a gracious privilege to be identified with the name of Christ and to be a salt on the Earth. I pray God will help us to preserve our worth by operating within the confine of His will.

      Hi teacherjoe,

      I have read your article and enjoyed it very much.....I agree with you, especially about not just sitting there, we need to continue to ask our Lord to show us what He wants us to do to bring glory to His name!

      God bless you brother, Helen
