Jesus sat down with a crowd one day. He taught them about His kingdom. He told them that they needed to think of themselves as salt. He said, "Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth."
When you put salt on a wound there is pain. America is badly wounded. When Christians speak and live the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is pain. We should expect difficulty.
Jesus said previously to this same group, "You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world."
We cannot begin to develop saltiness unless we choose to put our heart and mind right.

My mentor, Dr. Wilson Hickam, has worked at this for a lifetime. Two days ago, when I was talking with him in the wee hours of the morning in his livingroom, I snapped an image of him that I will treasure. The image shows him thinking, not fitting in. We mused together about not fitting in.
Jesus concluded, "If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?"
