Confessions of a Coffee-Holic, part 2

May 16, 2017

[PLEASE NOTE: If you haven’t read Part 1, just scroll down and do so.]

One problem with my daily dose of Naturally and Artificially Flavored French Vanilla Cappuccino Beverage Mix Made with Coffee happens when I have a cup of real coffee.

I can tell the difference immediately: it feels like my forehead’s exploding!

Just not used to the real thing, and it packs a punch.

Our old friend St. Paul encountered the same problem among some followers of Christ Jesus. Sadly, he probably would today as well. He told them, “I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.” (1st Corinthians 3:2)

Too many of us like the sweetness of Decaf Christ over the real deal.

Too many of us are not simply not ready for the full octane version of Christ Jesus.

Let’s you and me take time today to examine ourselves and and prayerfully ask if we’ve ordered Christ Lite.

And I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

  1. Never have been a fan of Lite anything (you know that word wasn’t a real word until you and I were beyond high school and you were three years ahead of me). I do find though, what I do is probably worse, instead of ordering Lite or full-strengh, I find a place to hide. Avoidance rather than encounter when my head is pounding.
