I like to cook, mostly for the humor of the experience & sometimes for the social element. Recently, RT Kendall came & spoke at our church. The preceding day, he came to our house & we made chili – his special recipe & my green chili. Now all of the chilis turned out great & taste wonderful. The truly great thing, however, was the amount that we made so i could freeze it & use it on a busy day. Lately, i’ve been doing alot of my cooking for the week on Saturdays – mousaka (greek lamb casserole), stuffed peppers, chicken tikka masala (indian), cinnamon rolls, lasagna, marinated flank steak, etc. Doing this on Saturdays helps a whole bunch because then during the busy-ness of the week, i’ve already got dinner made.
Here’s the God component: i think that sometimes we treat God like the weekend meal deal. We go to church, get a meal & think that this “banquet” will last for the week. In reality, God is always cooking something for you – everyday. When i was growing up, we used to sing this song, “Come & Dine for the Master Calleth”. God always has a rich table spread & available for us to feast on His presence & Word. Don’t be spiritually anorexic – come & dine w God everyday. He’s got something good cookin for you!!
