Caffeine? Yes, please! We travel a bunch for our business and late-night coffees are always a must to keep us fueled for the drives going from gym to gym.
John 7:37 says “….if anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.”
Coffee is like Jesus. Do you know anyone completely obsessed with coffee? Everywhere you see them they have their designated mug, just for coffee, that only they use. No. Matter. What. But why? It brings satisfaction to cravings, energy and peace, among many other things, but these are the first few that came to my mind. What if those same people were as obsessed with Jesus as they are with coffee? This world would be changed forever, for Jesus offers the same things as mentioned above.
He satisfies our thirst for things that nothing else does. (Psalm 107:9, NIV)
He gives us the energy we long for. (Colossians 1:29, NIV)
He gives us a peace that satisfies every fear or feeling of discomfort. (John 14:27)
Knowing the benefits that we receive from coffee physically, are very similar to the ones we receive from Christ spiritually, shouldn’t we strive to seek Christ EVEN MORE than coffee? To me, that seems a bit overwhelming. So try this: as many pray over their meals, thanking the Lord for the great things he brings to us, seek Jesus as you drink your cup of coffee. Pray he will satisfy every longing you have if it be his will, give you the energy you need and surround you in his peace. It’s amazing what a prayer can do.
Share Jesus, Love coffee!! It will change your life.
