Welcome to Our Daily Bible bytes. 🙏😊 I am your host Bible blogger. I am glad that you visited this post.
This is a very common question answered by many people. The pastors have Big and long sermons on this topic.😀 The question is, can salt to lose its saltiness?
The most probable answer is no. It is believed that common salt is the most stable compound and it can not loose its flavour even for many years.
Although the loss of flavour is not practically possible but it is theoretically possible. Some people definitely believe that salt can loose its saltiness in certain circumstances.
Salt specially rock salt has other compounds in addition to salt. When salt gets dissolved under the influence of moisture, the white compound left behind looks exactly salt like but lacks salt like taste.
Let us examine the chemical formula of Salt. The common salt comprises of sodium chloride (Nacl). These are two chemical items joined together. The sodium is a metallic ion whereas chloride is a gaseous ion.
The chlorine gas in a pure form is very noxious and toxic gas. When chlorine is combined with sodium it becomes the most wonderful sodium chloride which has many advantages.
The other compounds such as potassium chloride and calcium chloride are less tastier than sodium chloride.
Let us assume that we are like chlorine. We at times become noxious to some people. Let us assume that Christ is the sodium atom. He comes and attaches to us and transforms us into a fantastic sodium chloride. This combination will make us desirable by all.
The combination of Christ in you will change your speech, behaviour and communication with others. Other people lives will be flavoured by your presence as salt adds taste to the food.
Matthew 5:13 NASBS
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
That is exactly what we read in the above scripture quote. Christ said to his disciples that you are the salt of the earth. You have immense responsibility to bring taste in this tasteless world.
We need to introspect our lives. Are we spreading the flavour and taste of Jesus to this tasteless world. The opposite of this is loss of taste. When food is tasteless we tend to through it away. Let us not be tasteless.
What is the remedy to regain our taste? Answer is very simple. Go and get the sodium.😀 For us sodium is Jesus Christ.
Colossians 4:6 NASBS
Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
May God bless you all with these words.
Shalom 🕊️ from the Bible blogger 😋🍚
