DO WHAT GOD WANTS Jesus restates ministry instruction, “WHEN YOU ENTER A TOWN AND ARE WELCOMED, EAT WHAT IS SET BEFORE YOU” [Lk 10:8]. We all have different opinions about what we like to eat, sometimes influenced by our culture. One time a man of God was in a foreign country and a group of pastors took him out to eat. The food they provided was considered special in their country but in the man of God’s country, it would not only be highly offensive but against the law to serve it. As he looked at the food with distaste, God reminded him of Jesus’ words “EAT WHAT IS SET BEFORE YOU”. He then cut the meat up in small pieces, mixed it with rice and ate it. When Jesus says “DENY” [Lk 9:23] ourselves, it includes what we like to eat and our cultural concerns. Do you like doing what God wants? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
