Put The Mud Pies Down

C.S Lewis said, “If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” As believers we have traded a seat at the most high table for mud pies in the slums. As God’s children not only does He give us 100% access to His throne room where we can come into His presence, He has prepared a place at the most high table for us to eat and enjoy our self’s. This table is set for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lord’s and because of our position in Christ we are able to dine at the table for free. You see the one who owns the table has already paid for our seat with His life. Many believers have come to believe the lies of the enemy that the world will bring us much joy, happiness and satisfaction. Also we fall for the same lies that the enemy told Adam and Eve so long ago, that God is with holding His best for us and doesn’t really love us. We are so quick to listen to the lie that the mud pies are so much better to eat than the feast that is at the table of the High King. We would rather play in the world with things of the world (Facebook, TV, Video Games, Money, Sex, Porn, Power, Drugs, Martial things etc.) instead of running around and playing with the King. We are half-hearted creatures that are satisfied by the worldly things then by the infinite joy that God give us. Colossians 3: 1-3 says, “If then you have been raised with Christ seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” The two key words that jump out at me in these two verses are the words “seek” and “set.” We have to be seeking God daily by being in His Word and in prayer, and we have to set our minds on the truth of the Gospel. The Gospel is just not for non-believers, it is for believers and we have to be preaching the Gospel to ourselves every day. Put the mud pies down and run to the sea and sit at your spot at the table of the Most High God and enjoy His fellowship, joy, and don’t be tempted to run back to the mud pies. God loves you!
