The Slow Cooker

John 3:15Everyone who believes in Him who cleaves to Him, trusts Him, and relies on Him] may not perish but have eternal life and [actually] live forever. (AMP)

Did you know that high-temperature cooking creates something called advanced glycation end (AGE) products while a slow cooker reduces them? The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, claims that these chemicals interfere with the body’s ability to heal wounds. This is important for folks like my husband who suffer from diabetes.

The Slow Cooker
I used to be a slow cooker. My time was ne’er well spent.
My family cried for meals, but my time had come and went.
Then I got my slow cooker, my ‘slowly on the go’—
Now, food is always ready and always tastes just so.
And as we speak to others about the blood of Christ,
Let’s wait for Holy Spirit to ‘slow cooker’ in their lives!

When people don’t accept Jesus right away we try to pressure, push and sway them into a decision. We add toxic chemicals to already open wounds. Some then harden their hearts to the Gospel. Perhaps, if we stopped pressuring and started praying, the Holy Spirit might be free to softly simmer them to salvation.

Prayer: Father God, when we’ve shared the truth of Jesus, give us the grace to be quiet and let the Holy Spirit work. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
