You Are Salt

We will reflect on how God is creating Koinonia in our midst in worship this Sunday. We’ve looked back at Koinonia in history, we’ve looked around at how Koinonia is taking shape in other parts of our country, and now we will explore the contours of Koinonia in our own community of faith.

Our reading will be taken from Matthew 5 beginning with verse 13:

13“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.

Jesus reminds his followers that they are to be the salt of the earth. Salt preserves. Flavors. Ronald Allen writes, “in ancient times [salt] was rubbed on newborn children, used to seal covenants, sprinkled on sacrifices, and understood as a metaphor for wisdom.”

How might you be salt this day? How might you be salt for your family, your school, your work, your neighborhood?
