(1) And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: (2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them saying, Matthew 5:1-2
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost is 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. Matthew 5:13
Salt is used to flavor food. Salt is also used on roads and bridges to melt snow and ice. Why did Jesus use salt as a reverence to Christians in this matter? One of the main effects of salt is that it causes thirst. Jesus used salt here, I feel, because Christians need to be salt to a thirsty world. We should live our lives in such a way that the world. But, so often, we live like the world. That is when the salt has lost its savour. If we are to make the world thirst for Jesus, we as Christians should make Jesus number one in our lives.
