The first step to properly seasoning meat starts by bringing a piece up to room temperature. Similarly speaking, to prepare oneself spiritually begins by putting yourself in an ideal environment, surrounded by godly influences. When the conditions are right, the seasoning process can commence.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot, Matthew 5:13.
If chicken, pork or steak is not full thawed, spices will not fully adhere, falling off during the cooking process. Likewise, if hearts, minds or souls are hardened, the words of the Bible will fall upon deaf ears, unable to soak in God’s truths. Therefore, the timing must not be rushed, waiting for tenderness to maximize each season applied.
For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them, Matthew 13:15.
Finally, to secure seasons to any meat, lightly brush olive oil over the surface. This process serves as a coating, like an adhesive that holds in the flavors while on a grill. In the same way, individuals who want to please the Lord need to spend time in prayer which seals in God ‘s promises. When you add Bible Study and worship to this daily practice, Christians will soak in the Spirit. becoming fully seasoned for that seasons that lie ahead in life. Start these preparations now.
