Leviticus 2,3 John 21 Proverbs 18 Colossians 1

Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings. Leviticus 2:13

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. John 21:7

From the fruit of his mouth a man’s stomach is filled; with the harvest from his lips he is satisfied. Proverbs 18:20

I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness Col 1:25

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. Col 4:6

God commanded the Israelites to salt all their offerings. It is interesting that the word salt comes from a Latin word saltus which means to jump.

Peter, certainly the spiciest of the Apostles, jumped out of the boat when he recognized the resurrected Jesus.

As servants of God we are to offer, the good news, fully seasoned to satiate  the hunger and thirst of a lost world. When the Holy Spirit prompts we must be, like Peter, ready to fling ourselves into deep situations. Life is not a wading pool.

Properly seasoned food doesn’t taste salty, it just tastes good. We offer the tenderness of a Father that loved his creation so much that he sent his only Son to die for the entire world. We just want the world to know the news that Jesus died for them is good, very very good.

Lord, I ask only one thing. That you use my impulsivity for your kingdom. In Jesus Name. Amen
