A Christian With Flavor!

Greetings one and all in the precious name of our LORD Jesus Christ! Another week is upon us and it's going to be a great week to help gather up the harvest!!

Today we are going to look at salt. Sea Salt in particular.According to Dr. F. Batmanghelidj MD this particular salt has many important health benefits lets look at a few. Salt can be very effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats, is a strong anti stress element for the body, is vital for extracting excess acidity from inside the cells, particularly the brain cells, and is vital for the kidneys to clear excess acidity and pass the acidity to the urine. We are 75% water and the water found in our cells, tissues etc... is similar to the saltwater found in the ocean. As noted above salt is an important component that our bodies need and there's more! Salt is used as a preservative and it also produces something ...thirst. Eat enough potato chips and peanuts and it won't be long before you will want something to drink. Another thing salt does is it gives flavor! No culinary masterpiece can be considered dull once some salt has been added. I found out also that in ancient times salt was extremely valuable, the Romans would sometimes be paid in salt!

It's no wonder why Jesus likened believers to salt in 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.
If we are loving God, living hard for Him, and taking up our cross daily then the people around us are going to get thirsty. As they see us joyful and even tearful, yet triumphant under some hard circumstances they will get thirsty. As they witness our love, devotion, liberty, and fearlessness that marks our lives in God they are going to get thirsty. As they see our character, integrity, and excellent work ethics they will get thirsty! Stay "Salty Saints." Don't lose your flavor by trying to be bland and fit in with this perishing world. We have been designed by God to lead the lost to the "eternal thirst quencher" Jesus Christ. (-:

Be prepared, Be yourself, Be obedient and Be joyful


Prayer for Everyone BLESS YOU
