Prepared several Blackberry Jam Cakes, Potato Soup and a Casserole for a Homecoming Celebration for a Local Congregation
Good evening, all. I thought that I would take a lesson from what I spent my Friday doing, cooking. I followed my recipes that I use for these particular foods and the food turned out just as perfect as it usually does. But you know that is what happens if you follow the recipe, which is nothing but a plan for building a cake, a casserole, soup, etc. And we then, serve it up to others and ourselves and hear comments like, "Um um, this is good" or "You outdid youself this time; this is delicious!" In other words, folks, they and you liked the end product.
Now in that same vein, if we follow the Lord's plan for ourlives, one day we will be able to hear Him say, (paraphrasing here) "You did a good job." And we will be able to say, "This tastes good to my soul" when we get to drink of the water of the tree of life. We will have followed the Lord's plan for a living a Christian life and heaven will be the end product for us and we know that we will like that.
