Welcome to the Chester Presbyterian Blog!
In his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) Jesus tells his followers: “You are the salt of the earth.” Eugene Peterson’s translation in The Message highlights Jesus’ intent. “Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the god-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.”
