Matthew 5:13 NASB
You are the salt of the earth;
but if the salt has become tasteless,
how can it be made salty again?
It is no longer good for anything,
except to be thrown out
and trampled under foot by men.
Jesus never wanted us to give up
▪︎ our moral distinctiveness,
▪︎ our redemptive influence,
▪︎ nor our loving impact on those around us.
The purpose of our presence in the world is to preserve our Christian culture from further decay, and season the bitter, dog-eat-dog world, with grace and mercy.
▪︎ Ask God to help you resist becoming conformed to the world
▪︎ Ask God to help you to use your distinctiveness as a Christian, to bless others and to expand the influence and impact of His Kingdom.
