Shall we let them eat cake too?

cakeJenny started our service on Sunday by unveiling a cake she had made. She then cut a slice and ate a bit and described what it tasted like before saying that she was glad that she could share the experience with us.

You could hear the disappointment as people realized that they might not get to try the mouth-watering cake.

The point was simple. We have such amazing good news to share, so why would we keep it to ourselves?

Then she made a statement of theological greatness:

‘Jesus is better than cake’.

If Jesus really is so great, then we should have a deeper desire for him and also we should want to be honest about our faith, to share with others what we have found and experienced in Jesus.

Jenny is a Minister in Training and she is on placement with us at Orchard Baptist Church which makes us very happy :). Her cake was shared after the service and it was a great reminder that Jesus should be shared freely.

Who will we share cake Jesus with today?

This could be offering to pray for someone, telling someone about God’s peace if they are stressed, letting someone know they are loved by God if they are feeling low or many other things.

So let’s pray and ask God for the courage to be honest about our faith.

A confession: Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of Jenny’s cake and so I have used a stunt double cake in the picture above.
