Sundar Singh: salt

Saturday, June 19, 2021
    Commemoration of Sundar Singh of India, Sadhu, Evangelist, Teacher, 1929
    [Jesus:] “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?”
    —Luke 14:34 (NIV)
    Salt, when dissolved in water, may disappear, but it does not cease to exist. We can be sure of its presence by tasting the water. Likewise, the indwelling Christ, though unseen, will be made evident to others from the love which he imparts to us.
    ... Sadhu Sundar Singh (1889-1929), Reality and Religion: meditations on God, man, and nature, London: Macmillan, 1924, p. 24-25 (see the book)
    See also Luke 14:34; Lev. 2:13; Num. 18:19; 2 Chr. 13:5; Matt. 5:13; Mark 9:50; Col. 4:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, sustain my “saltiness” with Your presence within.
