Sub Theme: The Pilgrim’s Lifestyle 1
Topic: Salt of the world
to expose the bitterness in an ungodly life,
to discuss the heavenly pilgrim as the salt of the world and
to point out the dangers of losing value as the salt of the world.
The importance of salt in cooking can never be over emphasised. In the ancient world, salt has great value to the point that Roman soldiers sometimes were paid their wages in salt. Jesus in his sermon on the mount called the attention of his disciples to manifest themselves as salt in the decaying world. Jesus also drew their attention to the implication of salt losing its value (Matt. 5:13).Christians who obey God and do his will serve as a preservative to the moral and spiritual decay of the world around them (John 15:14). The scripture is encouraging us to pattern our lives after that of Christ so as to maintain our relevance as salt of the world. (1 John 2:6).
What are the purposes of salt in ancient times and in our present age? Lev. 2:13; Eze 43:24; Mark 9:49
Mention some of the signs of a decayed generation ICor 5:1-2; 2Tim 3:1-5. How can Christians be salt in such decadence? Rom. 12:9-21; IICor 6:14; Tit 2:7,Tit 2:15.
Explain how some Christians are losing their relevance as salt today? Rom. 1:29-32; 2Tim. 4:10;1 Tim. 6:10.
What are the benefits of Christians’ manifestation as salt of the world? Hab. 2:14; Ps. 22:27; Jer. 31:34; Rom. 12:18.
As Christians, we should always live as the salt of the world in other to maximize our ability to flavour or bless others through our good works. We must always manifest as preservation so as not to lose our relevance and become insignificant.
Food for Thought
We are salt to preserve godliness.
Matt 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has 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”.
