Finding God in the Kitchen
A comparison book about our walk with Christ and following the basic steps of a cake recipe.
Finding God in the Kitchen, a superbly creative comparison book on one's walk with Christ and following the basic stages of a cake recipe. In this book, the author shows us how God is the master baker, taking pride and precise care in creating His magnificently made finished product, the human race.
The master baker is "baking up" a marvelous, multi-layered cake.. generation after generation. ...
We as the human race are like a masterfully arranged cake, one layer after the other of grace, mercy and love. Have we ruined the master's cake by allowing a filling oozing with corruption and sin between our layers?
Finding God in the Kitchen is a compelling Christian study guide to following Gods purposeful recipe for His perfect outcome- you.
This book also includes a bonus of the author's favorite cake recipes.
A recipe is a set of instructions developed to direct us, or guide us through creating something special. Those who bake, or cook will appreciate the spirit of seeking out that perfect recipe. I love to bake and eat cake, therefore- I am always searching for that perfect melt in your mouth, nice and fluffy, roll your eyes in the back of your head, kick ya mama, gurl you sure did ya thang on this one, cake!
While exploring for that perfect cake recipe, I go through all kinds of extremes. I cut out recipes from magazines. I harass little old grandmas. I invest too much money on cookbooks. I fall asleep in front of the television at night while watching cooking networks. I know that I will never get around to trying them all, but I download and bookmark hundreds of recipes to my PC.
The ultimate test begins when it is the recipe and me alone in the kitchen. Who will be the victor? Is this recipe going to be a hook or a sinker? Will it rise to success or fall flat like a pancake? How many glasses of milk does it take to swallow the cake, will be the determining factor.
In true life (righteousness), we have already obtained the perfect recipe (instructions), but we're so busy reaching for the untouchable life (self-righteousness) that we cannot see the forest (God) from the trees (the world). The bible, just as a basic recipe, already contains all of the ingredients and the answer (God) for a perfect product (You).
