(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:13
(13) Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
BE COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED!
Brethren, as significant personalities of the body of Christ, with kingdom inheritances, we are not just ordinary people within the world of darkness, we are the lights of this world; therefore, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior requires his believers to act the same manners, in which he acted whiles on earth; love our Father, love one another as ourselves, be compassionate towards the suffering, with spirits of empathies, walk uprightly, with integrities, think through our words before we utter them, speak majestically, with qualities of royalties, talk not in vexations, in all circumstances, be cool, calm and collected, gathering informations, listen carefully to what people say to assimilate wisdom, and understanding of their perceptions on issues; when challenging moments surfaces in our lives, exercise mouths of authorities over evil works of infiltration spirits; set the captives free from shackles of the enemy, minster the gospel truth, sanctify hearts of humanity, to repent from evil and believe the gospel, enlighten their pathways into the last boat of salvation, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
In the above text, Apostle Paul used salt as an analogy to speeches of believers, explaining his point of view on believers' behaviors and integrities; what is Salt?; it is a condiment, consisting mainly of sodium chloride, commonly used in every household, and good for seasoning, preserving food; however, too much consumption of Salt, to some, may be dangerous for human health, because of medical reasons; however, Salt generally is a good condiment; when we cook or eat delicacies but without Salt, regardless of how much condiments we bring together in our cookings, it is tasteless: therefore, Salt is very important aspect of our tasteful lives; Apostle Paul encourages believers to have taste in the utterances, not to speak with ill manners, ignorantly, nonsensically, rather speak wisdomly, slowly, taking times to explain ourselves, so that the hearers can understand, assimilate their points of views entirely: there are few references in the scriptures thereby Salt is mentioned: Jesus said, 'Ye are Salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot." per Matthew 5:13; our Father gave his beloved children a covenant of Salt: refer to Numbers 18:19; ask them to season every oblation of meat with Salt. refer to Leviticus 3:13; Elisha said, bring me a new cruse, and put Salt therein, .. cast the Salt into the spring of waters, prayed, and healed the waters: refer to 2 Kings 2; and the list goes on; therefore, Salt in biblical sense is an enlightenment to our souls; let us not lose our flavours, do as much as we can to maintain gifts and talents of the Holy Spirit, share, encourage, inspire one another with what we have received from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, when we salt lives of others, we receive more replenishments of salt from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to continue to savories in an unsavory world of darkness.
Dearly beloved, as Salted individuals, let not our savories be tasteless, but rather tasteful, so that souls could perceive, assimilate and endeavor to be Saltines as well as Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, have salvation and be joint heirs with him in live everlasting. Amen and Amen!
