Matthew 05i – Salt

Speaker:
Passage: Matthew 5:13
Service Type:

Salt has become such a common item in our lives that it can almost be invisible. We will look at why Jesus described His followers as salt in this world.

1 Corinthians 7:14 (MSG)

12-14 For the rest of you who are in mixed marriages—Christian married to non-Christian—we have no explicit command from the Master. So this is what you must do. If you are a man with a wife who is not a believer but who still wants to live with you, hold on to her. If you are a woman with a husband who is not a believer but he wants to live with you, hold on to him. The unbelieving husband shares to an extent in the holiness of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is likewise touched by the holiness of her husband. Otherwise, your children would be left out; as it is, they also are included in the spiritual purposes of God.

Leviticus 2:13

Ezekiel 16:4

Job 6:6

Luke 6:35

Colossians 4:5-6

Lake Afrera, approx. 103 meters below sea level, and associated salt works. The briny water is pumped up onto the gently sloping plain to the north, where it is dried and harvested by hand for human consumption. The lake is said to be the hottest inhabited place on earth, and at sunset in mid-March the air temperature in flight 300m. above ground was 98°F (37°C).
