S.A.L.T. = what in your life?

 

Salt Shakin Sister Foundation is built  upon this verse:  Message Version

Matthew 5:13-16

Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt seasoning that brings out the                 God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? Here’s another way to put its: You’re to be a light, bringing out the God-colors In the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket do you?                                                                I’m putting you on a light stand, shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God.

 

What happens when we "get out of sorts"?

What does it mean to be trampled under foot?

13.You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

“No longer good for anything, but to be trampled out and underfoot” – that’s how I feel if I get too far away from my Jesus! When we are in communion with Jesus, in prayer and bible study and Christian Church Fellowship, we are continuously filling our salt shakers with SALT.

When we move away from that sweet relationship with Jesus, our salt shakers get empty and then our lives get dried up and we become ineffective for sharing our faith and the grace of Jesus.

  When we are “out of sorts”, out of the will of God, and start walking in the flesh, so to speak, we will get trampled on by satan! He will draw us into things that are not good for us, and even take us back into that old lifestyle we lived prior our acceptance of Jesus as our personal Savior. He binds us up and tramples all over us with guilt, unforgiveness, anger, resentment, jealousy, addictive substances and more, you get the message I’m sure.

 

You are in our prayers when your name is put in our Salty Mug from LIKEing the FB Page.

Guard your heart...

Proverbs 4:20-23

My child, pay attention to what I say, Listen carefully to my words. 

Don't lose sight of them, let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they will bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body.

GUARD YOUR HEART ABOVE ALL ELSE, for it determines the course of your life. 

 

Question #3 – What is Salt used for?

 

S.A.L.T.- This is our foundation Acronym created from  Matthew 5:13-16 for our Salt Shakin Sister Outreach & Ministry.

 

S        sprinkle some salt -Gods Word

A       around; be a

L        light to others; help show the way

T        touch others with Gods love and

           kindness. Be blessed and be a 

           blessing today.  

          

"Good Salt" comes from knowing Gods Word, "Sprinkle" some salt (Word of God) around today.

"Lack of Salt" - How can you "sprinkle" salt, (share Gods Word) on others, if your

 "salt shaker" is empty????

 Shakin Salt and Sharing Jesus through Gods Word and Creation Crafts

 

How do you lose your "flavor in life"?

Colossians 4:6

Let your speech be always with grace seasoned with sale, that you may know what you ought to answer every man.

 

Mark 9:49-50

For everyone will be tested with fire. SALT is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.

Luke 14:34-35

Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? Flavorless salt is good neither for the soil, it is thrown away. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand. Salt is excellent, but if the salt goes flat, it's good for nothing.

(We can be salty- a witness for Jesus by filling our salt shaker each day with Gods Word and prayer)

WOW For today - Salty Session #2

Question #2 -What is salt made of?

Our Second Question:  2. What is salt made from?

 BFC- I feel like I’m in school again, doing a science research paper on “salt”. I had no idea this study of Matthew 5:13-16 would teach me the pros and cons on salt, how It’s made, and in the middle of all the research statements we found, we also found some information that would “preach and teach” Godly principles, Life Application Wisdom.      Way cool-  I so love this!

Salt Mining-  Salt is present in the rocky under layers of the Earth's surface and can be extracted through mining.

 Salt is more than just a grouping of letters found on the periodic table or a commodity bought and sold on the international market it is a life substance essential to the proper functioning of the human body.

Salt- Gods Word is Salt and we are the Salt of the earth if we use the salt/Gods word to guide and help us in this life’s journey. You notice in the statement above it says; “it can be extracted through mining”. That means we must read – dig into the word, extract from it – then and only then will we reap the benefits / wisdom and truths from it.

God’s Word won’t do us any good if we just have that large bible sitting on our coffee table for decoration or putting pressed flowers inside the pages, thus never reading it. It will require some “labor and time” on our part to dig in, hear, and receive what God has for us. We do our part and He will do His.

God’s Word is a “life substance that is essential to the proper functioning of our human body, soul and spirit”.

Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. (4 times salt)

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (4 times light)

W.O.W. 12/7/18- ENDURANCE!

Hebrews 12:1-2-6

Let us RUN with ENDURANCE the race     God    has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus. My child, don't make light of the Lords discipline, and don't give up when He corrects you. For the Lord disciplines those He loves.

God is Love

Allow time every morning for Jesus. It will make your day go a lot better. blessins bfc

1 John 4:16-17

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus in the World.

1 John 5:18 & 21

We know that God's children do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the control of the evil one.  Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your heart. (Guard your Heart and mind from what you listen to, watch and where you go) 

Amen.

W.O.W. for today:

1 John 1:... He is the WORD.... He is the ONE who is eternal life.....This message is from JESUS, God is light and no darkness is in Him at all.  .... If we confess our sins to  Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 

amen

Please Pass the Salt - Matthew 5: 13-16 Message Version

13 "Let me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.

14 "Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. 15 If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. 16 Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand — shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.   (Message Version)
