A Letter from the Editor of Calvary Chapel Magazine

The Salt of the Earth—from Editor Tom Price

“You are the salt of the earth.” Matthew 5:13a

issue 63 cover Calvary Chapel Magazine UkraineJesus spoke these words at a time in history when salt was a commodity of great importance, not just a table seasoning used with pepper. Salt not only adds flavor to food but it is a preservative—an anti-decaying agent. Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, a noted 20th century Welsh minister from Westminster Chapel in London, England, said, “[The world] is like meat which has a tendency to putrefy and to become polluted ... which can only be kept wholesome by means of a preservative.” Jesus told His disciples that they are that preservative—the salt the world needs to inhibit sin. Romans 6:23 says that sin leads to death. Note that Jesus didn’t ask them to work toward becoming a purifying influence. He simply said, “You are.” This tremendous responsibility is also a great privilege.

In this issue we cover how churches are using radio, modern technology, and the Internet to reach the world for Christ. Christians are becoming online missionaries as unbelievers browse the Internet to ask if God is real. Hundreds of Calvary Chapels are investing in low-power and high-power radio stations to reach commuters and Internet users with the Gospel message. Last year’s senior pastors conference at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, CA, was attended by 1,500 pastors while over 40,000 watched and listened to the live simulcast from around the world.

Technological advances can be effective tools to make disciples and encourage believers. Pray that through these resources, as salt of the earth, we would create in unbelievers a thirst for the living water that can only be satisfied through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
