19: Rich Watson | Salt Life

What does God want to talk about when He created the ocean?

The salt of the Earth.

Are you thirsty or are you producing thirst?

The woman at the well was thirsty for belonging. She met there right man at the well.

John 4:13-14

Matthew 5:6

We have to change our desire. We’re thirsty for the wrong things- money, power, fame.

When you’re in the desert, the only thing that matters is getting a drink. We have to be thirsty for God.

We have to be thirsty for what God is doing in our lives.

Salt preserves. quit throwing salt on things that should be dead.

The world is drowning. We have to be life preservers instead of anchors.

We have to throw salt on our present and our future. What legacy are you leaving behind?

Are you the salt or are you salty? What does your speech say? What flavor are you leaving for the world?

Are we enhancing the flavor of life or making it inedible?

Colossians 4:6

Our testimony should never be private. You have to start to telling people about how God changes your life to make others thirsty for Him.

Quit telling everyone about every bad detail of your life- start telling them Psalms 34:8- TASTE AND SEE!

Salt is essential to life.

Our bodies don’t naturally produce salt. Our bodies need God.

Your flesh wants to fight against God.

Matthew 5:13

The world has watered down the salt. YOU ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.

Salt is the main ingredient of the Earth. God says you are the main ingredient of life

It can’t be temporary, it has to be a lifestyle.

Maybe you’ve lost your flavor, but maybe you just have to check yourself and season yourself with the world, or coming to church when you don’t feel like it.

Maybe you’ve been trying to add the wrong things to your life. Maybe there are some things you thought were supplements but they were actually substitutes.

God says add this and we say “eh tastes fine.”
God says take this away and we say, “but it’s always tasted this way.”
God says “if you start seasoning your life with me, I’ll give you something you’ve never tasted before.”

Maybe you’ve been trying to find out what’s going to fill you up.

The world is trying to dilute us down.

Taste and see that the Lord is good!
