The Zealot
Matthew 10:2-4; Romans 15:12; Isaiah 11:6-10

Someone once observed that if you put these two hazardous elements in your mouth by themselves, they’d either blow you up (sodium) or poison you (chlorine).

Their battle cry was, “No Lord but Jehovah, no tax but the temple tax, no friend but the Zealot.”

Jesus came to transform us so that we wouldn’t be hazardous to those around us. So we would become the salt of the earth.

“Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than sitting your garage makes you a car.”

They didn’t follow Jesus one day and then suddenly become powerhouses for the Kingdom the next.

We are the salt of the earth, but it’s NOT just being in church that makes us that salt. It’s being in Jesus, and loving Jesus.
