Spirit of Prophecy

In the ritual service, salt was added
to every sacrifice. This, like the
offering of incense, signified that
only the righteousness of Christ could
make the service acceptable to God.
Referring to this practice, Jesus said,
“Every sacrifice shall be salted with salt."
“Have salt in yourselves, and have
peace one with another." All who would
present themselves "a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God” (Rom. 12:1),
must receive the saving salt, the
righteousness of our Saviour. Then they
become "the salt of the earth," restraining
evil among men, as salt preserves from
corruption. Matt. 5:13. But if the salt has
lost its savor; if there is only a profession
of godliness, without the love of Christ,
there is no power for good. The life can
exert no saving influence upon the world.
Your energy and efficiency in the upbuilding
of My kingdom, Jesus says, depend upon
your receiving of My Spirit. You must be
partakers of My grace, in order to be a
savor of life unto life. Then there will
be no rivalry, no self-seeking, no desire
for the highest place. You will have that
love which seeks not her own, but
another's wealth.
(The Desire of Ages, Chapter 48, page 439)
