This morning as I was baking biscuits for the Outpost I began to seek the Lord in spirit for further understanding. Then as I was watching the biscuits closely He began to teach me the parallel between a chef and discipleship. For a chef knows what ingredients to add and the importance of recognizing the timing of when the food is ready to receive.This same skill is to be recognized in discipleship.
A chef also recognizes the importance of proper flames and constant heat within the preparation of the meal. Another vital part is the atmosphere of the room. The chef knows that not all sides cook the same and the object of the dish is for every side to accent the main coarse. The Lord continued to teach me in this relation to discipleship through recognizing that every biscuit is vital to watch. For not all biscuits are ready at the same time even though they stay in the oven at the same temperature. For their location within the oven plays a roll in their developing process as there is an importance in a well balanced meal as well.
There is alot of wisdom to this message that simply does not not stop when we seek God for further understanding. The vital part is recognizing that anyone can put the biscuits in the oven but who is willing to stay with them all the Way through???
I don’t know about you but there is nothing like smelling something in the oven that is being cooked in love and watching it develop over time…..The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. Revelations 22:17
