3 TO BE A DISCIPLE-MAKER OF JESUS CHRIST

4 Some Consequences of Not Living Out The Calling LUKE 14:33-35; JONAH 1:1-15

5 1. YOU ARE USELESS Luke 14:33-35

6 1. YOU ARE USELESS Luke 14:33-35 "Stuff" looks different for each of us... what does it look like for you?

7 "In the ancient world, salt was used as a seasoning and as a preservative. The salt came mostly from salt marshes in the area south-west of the Dead Sea. This impure salt was susceptible to deterioration and could lose its flavour, leaving only useless crystals. Such salt was simply thrown away. Jesus’ question, “How do you make it salty again?” did not require an answer—for once salt has deteriorated, nothing is left but worthless residue…

8 …Many Christians blend into the world and avoid the cost of standing up for Christ. But Jesus says if Christians lose their distinctive “saltiness,” they become worthless. Just as salt flavours and preserves food, Christ’s disciples are to preserve the good in the world, help keep it from spoiling, and bring new flavour to life. This requires careful planning, willing sacrifice, and unswerving commitment to Christ’s Kingdom. Being “salty” is not easy, but if Christians fail in this function, they fail to represent Christ in the world. The person who is willing to hear should be able to understand these words and apply them."
