I like to eat! One look at me will reveal that I’m not preaching; I’m telling the truth!! I like good food. I think my favorite is Chinese. I especially like a good, well-stocked buffet. I think buffets are the greatest invention since sliced bread (especially if there’s warm homemade bread ON the buffet!). My wife doesn’t like buffets because she says she doesn’t eat enough to get her money’s worth. I tell her “That’s okay, Honey. I’ll eat enough to get both our money’s worth!” So if you don’t like to eat at buffets because you don’t eat enough to get your money’s worth---CALL ME!!! We’ll do lunch!
I want to preach a message tonight entitled “The Most Important Meal of the Day”. It’s not breakfast, or lunch or dinner. It’s the other meal that each of us as believers should be partaking of every single day of our Christian lives. This is a three-course meal.

B. After you find the will of God, DO IT!!---Ephesians 6:6
