“God has given you gifts to be poured out into this world. Without salt, people sink to the bottom of this sinful world. But with you, the salt of the world, people rise! Keep using your gifts, keep being salty!” @amenalex
Great illustration from Alex! When you place an egg in a glass of water the egg will sink. If you add enough salt to the water the egg will float! Adding salt to the water increases the density without increasing the volume. There’s still the same amount of water there – it’s just heavier.
I don’t want to abuse this analogy, but if the culture is the water, and we are the salt; we can increase the density of Jesus’ message without increasing the volume. 😳
We’ve got these gifts for a reason friends – let’s use them!
