Salty Saints

Key Verse

“Salt is good, but if the salt has lost his saltiness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves and have peace one with another” (Mark 9:50).

Text — Mark 9:49-50


Salt is a preservative that keeps food ingredients (meat, fish, etc.) from going rancid. Christ figuratively uses salt to convey the quality of life expected of every Christian. Followers of Christ must do whatever it takes to be salty, a kind of life that is pure, pleasant, appealing and preservative. Salt can lose its savour through exposure to extreme weather conditions of sun and rain. So Adam Clark says, “A preacher, or private Christian, who has lost the life of Christ, and the witness of his Spirit, out of his soul may be likened to this salt. He may have the sparks and glittering particles of true wisdom but without its unction or comfort.” Have you lost your savour?

Friend, if your saltiness is lost, you need to ask for grace for renewal to restore it to its original state. As a Christian youth, you are expected to be salt of the world. You are to be an example in Christian life and conduct. God expects you to live holily, transparently and peacefully with everyone wherever you find yourself.


Be salt of the world


 Watchfulness preserves the salty saints.

Prayer for today

Lord Jesus, help me not to lose my saltiness as a saint.
