Re-Serve the Reserve

I am ashamed to admit that I’ve put my good old Baptist training on the back burner too often. That’s right, I am a Baptist born and blessed by parents who believed in Hell’s Fire, Brimstone and the inerrant Word of GOD. I have always known what was expected of a Christian, but quite often,  my natural man was stronger than the spiritual side .  I did some bad stuff and squelched that still-small voice that reminded me of my sinful ways. I was the master of my fate and captain of my soul.  What a joke!  What a reprobate! What a hypocrite! What a failure! What a mess! What an arrogant donkey! I put My Lord JESUS on the back burner. I said, “I can do it now. I’ll call when I need you.”  I called a lot and HE answered in Mercy and Grace too many times to count. It has taken me a long time to travel the dark road of “selfie” and get smart as to important things. JESUS patiently stood ready – in reserve – and answered my call for service. The table HE sets is overflowing with abundance of that which is eternal. HIS meal will never spoil and it won’t require an anti-acid tablet, donchaknow.  How much time I wasted placing My Lord JESUS in reserve. I am blessed that all those mistakes are covered and forgotten. How could I  but serve HIM. With HIS power and provision, I shall do so. We all should bind ourselves in GOD’s ‘guardall’ in preparation for what’s coming.  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
