Confessions of a Coffee-Holic, part 3 of 3

May 17, 2017

[PLEASE NOTE: If you haven’t read parts 1 and 2, simply scroll down and do so first.]

Another problem I’ve encountered with my Naturally and Artificially Sweetened French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix, Made with Coffee is the recipe.

Or maybe it’s with the directions.

Either way, I know it’s yet another case of Operator Error.

To properly prepare a serving of Naturally and Artificially Sweetened French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix, Made with Coffee takes a three step process.

  1. Boil water.
  2. Put the appropriate amount of scoops of Naturally and Artificially Sweetened French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix, Made with Coffee into the cup/mug/Yeti One Gallon Rambler Jug.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the Naturally and Artificially Sweetened French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix, Made with Coffee powder.

On more than one occasion I’ve taken my first sip and found it to be weak and lacking in flavor. Like really bland. Even blah. Like it was just hot water.

Because I’d accidentally skipped the second part of the recipe and forgot to add the Naturally and Artificially Sweetened French Vanilla Cappuccino Mix, Made with Coffee.

The same thing happens with our faith and in our churches. We get everything in place, shiny and polished and perfect, but leave out the key ingredient: Christ Jesus.

And we find ourselves in hot water.

And the writer of Hebrews 5:12-14 roars at us: “You ought to be teachers, but you have need for someone to again teach you the elementary principles of the things of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

“Everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for they are infants.

“Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.” 

Time for us to change some things.
