I tell ya I can find CHRIST in the most odd places. Seriously, I can.
Last week I had to go to the city to get a medical procedure completed, so we had to stay in this hotel. Well across the street was a little deli. There were lots of restaurants around but my husband went to this deli, and said they had a few things there. My curiosity was peaked so I decided to take a dart over.
Now of course they had all the usual stuff, chips, pop, bars, etc. None of this I really wanted to eat. Then something caught my attention. This deli had another level. Funny how things work like that. All the regular stuff is one one level but something more interesting is on another level. The Bible is like that.
Anyway so I walk up these stairs and here I find all this homemade food. Nothing like the prepackaged stuff they are selling down below. It was all fresh made. Things like Macaroni and Cheese, Lasagna, a few other pasta dishes, and Jigg’s Dinner. Then, there was Shepherd’s Pie.
Well I have not had Shepherd’s Pie in years, and I chose that. They had a microwave there as well, and I was soon on my way back to the hotel.
Now as I was looking at this dish something struck me. This had a very thick layer of potatoes on it and below was a mess of meat, peas, carrots, corn, and gravy. I know why it’s called Shepherd’s Pie. Well maybe someone at sometime had the same thought as me. This is just a theory btw! Maybe they looked at this and said “That mess underneath, well that is us!” “All that thick layer of potatoes on top, well, that is JESUS, who covers all our mess!”
Shepherd’s Pie is really, really, good. I had forgotten how good it is. Sometimes we too forget how good JESUS is. Gratefulness and all that JESUS has done can be stolen so easily, from us. It’s nice to be reminded how good it tastes.
John 10:10-11 KJV “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
Take some time, and get yourself some Shepherd’s Pie!
All Glory and Honour is Yours Almighty Father through your SON, JESUS CHRIST!
