If you thought you had a cruddy job? — think again. Simon Allison eats pet food for a living. “It’s quite bland, really,” he said.
But it reminded me of how so many Christians today merely go thru the motions — chomping on a 5-second prayer on their way to work, or hesitating to eat the hard-to-swallow pill of going to church. Isn’t there more to life than this?
“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.“ Romans 14:17
You’re not “righteous” because you don’t smoke, and somebody else does. Nor does smoking a blunt, or lighting-up a bowl constitute “peace”. The life God calls us to is one of a right-standing with God thru Christ Jesus, being able to lay your head on the pillow at night because of the peace of God. And its walking in the joy of the Holy Ghost — no matter what kind of storm might be raging around you.
Simon says, that afterwards, he chews gum to prevent “dog breath”.
Don’t eat the dog food of religious duty…. you might want to grab a tic-tac too. Begin to partake of the feast that Jesus offers by living within the Kingdom of God!
