Leviticus 2:13

Leviticus 2:13 (ESV): “13 You shall season all your grain offerings with salt. You shall not let the salt of the covenant with your God be missing from your grain offering; with all your offerings you shall offer salt.”

Salt is a purifier and preservative used to cure and season food.  Thus, it was a valuable commodity in Biblical times.  Soldiers were paid with salt. It also stands as a symbol of sincerity, friendship, and loyalty.  Salt ultimately represents what the Church is supposed to be in the world.

God instructs Moses to offer salt with the grain offering. Not only this, but all sacrifices were to be offered with salt (Ezek 43:23).  It was to serve as a reminder of the covenant relationship Israel was in with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  They were to be preservers of the truth of God’s Word, sincere in their service to Him.  It's also important to note that the grain offering was to be free of leaven and honey which speaks of sin and insincerity.  God wants purity in our service and sacrifice.   

Did you know that you are to be a salty Christian?  Not in the worldly sense of the word as to be resentful, bitter, or irritable. We are to be pure in how we conduct ourselves so we can serve as an illustration of what God’s Kingdom looks like.  Thus, our speech should be seasoned with salt (Col 4:2-6), free from corruption, and full of grace and truth.  We are to preserve the truth of the Gospel and tell the world of the relationship God desires to have with them.  This is what it means to be the salt of the earth (Matt 5:13).  Represent your King and His Kingdom well!  Amen?

Father, we thank You for seasoning us and using us.  Help us to represent You well that we might serve as a reminder to all of Your Kingdom and nature we pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
