The Gospel is Not a Buffet

This 1-minute devotion explains why we can't treat God's Word like a "buffet." Are you eating the whole Gospel? #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

You can pick and choose exactly what you want at all-you-can-eat buffets. 



A number of Christians eat the Gospel this way, customizing it to their preferences. They leave out the hard parts and focus on the easy parts. But a plate full of desserts without vitamins, minerals, protein, and protein isn’t a balanced meal and it’s not a balanced Gospel.

Scripture tells us to “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8) because God’s Word is “sweeter than honey” (Psalm 119:103).

We start our faith diet by craving the pure milk of the Gospel (1 Peter 2:2).

But we can’t stay milk-fed babies or fill our plates with desserts. We need to move on to the solid food of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 3:2).

Love for Christ compels us to eat the solid food of self-denial and obedience (Luke 9:23-24).

The Gospel is a balanced meal, all we need to sustain our faith (Matthew 4:4).

But it’s not a buffet.

  1. Thank you for this teaching and correction. I understand that Hell is real.That is the main reason I pray for the conviction and salvation of my family and friends who coast along on karma and a scientific sort of after life.
    Lord if they will not listen to me or if they can not see You in me....show me how to reach them. If I am not able then send workers in there path whom they will listen too. Their lives are too special to be deceived.Save them Lord. SAVE THEM!
    AMEN.
