Matthew 5:13

By Rev. Dean Beaty    4/25/08


If Christ has come in

And cleansed us from sin,

We have received the new birth.

A task we must meet

For our work to complete;

“Ye are the salt of the earth.”


The salt keeps decay

From running away

And helps stop bacteria within.

If we then are salt

Our job is to halt

The growth of the infection of sin.


If Christ called us salt

Then it is our fault

If the world becomes rampant in sin.

For if salt has no savor

It has fallen from favor

And is trodden under the feet of all men.
