Better Tast Experience

Tuesday 10th June 2008

Jesus said, ‘You are the salt of the earth. But if salt becomes tasteless, what can make it salty again? It is good for nothing, and can only be thrown out to be trampled underfoot by men.

Jesus has just started His sermon on the Mount and has delivered the Beatitudes to the crowds. His teaching now becomes more personal, speaking into the lives of His disciples, into my life.

I enjoy a little salt on my food. It enhances the flavours, creating a whole new and better taste experience. What a powerful analogy for the Christian life.
But it begs a question... am I creating a new and better experience for those about me?... or have I become tasteless, just the same bland flavour as the world?
I want to make a difference, add zest and zeal to the lives of those around me. Then they can praise my Father in Heaven.

Holy spirit. You are the source of tang in my life. Increase Your Zest in me that Jesus may be glorified.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
