Like eating an elaborate dinner God has prepared etiquette and manners when we read his eloquent word.
1. Accept your seating:
God has placed you where your are for a reason--- accept it and enjoy the ride. When God wants you to move higher up He will show you how and when.
2. Read the menu:
Spend time reading what God has prepared. Read your Bible and meditate on His Word. It will give you strength and illumination according to God's plan for your life. It will keep you on course and remind your of your responsibilities in order to fulfill the plan God has for your life.
3. How to chew:
Too many Christians expect God to spoon feed them a blessing. He is supposed to place it in our mouths---work our jaws to chew it up---and help us swallow it. We want God to do everything. The fact is that we have the responsibility in God's sovereign world to stay close to Him while being fed when reading His Word.
4. Pay attention to the fruit:
The Kingdom of God is all about fruit. In life not every tree will bear fruit. That is not our fault. Our job is to plant, water, fertilize and nurture. Each fruit tree receives this care in different ways. Some will make it while others will not. Our job is to make sure they have proper attention.
5. Finish your meal:
John 3:16 tells us, "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son." Some believe that because God has already come & died for the sins of the world they have arrived and don't need to do anything else. However, it is important to finish the phrase regarding man'responsibility: "whosoever
believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." We must daily come to Him in order to receive the forgiveness that He purchased for us.
God has prepared an eloquently wonderful meal for us in the Bible and as we invoke his table manners we begin to enjoy all he has for us.
Prayer: Father help me to properly apply your manners and fully receive all that you have eloquently prepared for me in the Bible. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!
