Luke 14:34 “Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?”
Naomi and Ruth, Eli and Samuel, JEHOVAH and JESUS…Transitions!
From mother to daughter, to apprentice from Mentor, from GOD through HIS CHRIST…came Salvation!
“Some” earthly; ONE — Sovereign and perfect — Uncommon! Eternal’s sole option is? JESUS our LORD!
So “torch transfer” then into every relation and take HIS connection to those with no spark!
As HIServant vigorously recharging in HIS WORD each morning before taking the field,
Devotional: Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.”
It’s just like the LORD says about being salt and light to the world. If our salt, our testimony,
and our witness has lost its saltiness (meaning its impact) because we’ve shrunk back or diluted what GOD did by clinging to the world more so…
…then we too are in need of being relit/reignited / re-flavored if you will.
Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your FATHER WHO is in heaven.”
So Naomi passed her faith onto Ruth and Eli did the same for Samuel.
But! Our Three-in-ONE GOD sent CHRIST to save us as HIS own through HIS death, burial and resurrection at Calvary!
So pass the Torch of Faith in GOD to every relation-ship! Family, friend and even foe who doesn’t know better!
Burn brightest for HIS NAMESAKE into every darkness; and re-salt every word and action before serving.
AND! Never grow dim nor tasteless under ANY circumstance!
Amen and amen!
