And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall be made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of the LORD made by fire. As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the LORD: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savour. And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt. (Lev. 2:10-13)
God desires that His servants are well taken care of, not a life of luxury or ease, but neither should they be taken advantage of in the work of the Lord. God’s workers are not to exact more than their share nor are they to abuse their position but they are worthy of their hire. All that is offered to God is to be without sin, without decay, and without spiritual leaven, but holy and pure before Him who is worthy of all our gifts. We are to be worthy of our salt, working and earning our salary as unto the Lord and being the salt and light He has called us to be in this world, preserving, healing, and pointing people to the ultimate healer and preserver who can save them from their sins.
As living sacrifices we offer ourselves to God for His work and to do His will. We live the Gospel we preach, not in abject poverty nor in opulent wealth, for neither glorifies God who provides and sustains His servants and people. We are to live a life of holiness unto the Lord, not continuing in sin or doing as we please but serving God, striving to live His righteousness through His Spirit within us and being salt and light in this dark and broken world.
God sends us out into this world to reach the lost and desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our GOD has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of GOD so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of GOD might have life in His Name.
GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
