The McIlhenry Tabasco Sauce folks have adopted the Scoville Heat Unit scale to rate the spiciness of their sauce. To give you an idea, catsup would be about a zero on the Scoville heat unit scale. Their mild Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce would rate about 600 Scoville Heat Units; their medium tempered Tabasco Pepper Sauce would rate about 5,000 Scoville Heat Units, and their hottest sauce, Tabasco Jabenero Sauce would rate a five-alarm 9,000 Scoville Units! Jesus is calling us to be the salsa of the earth, so I want you to rate the heat of your spiritual salsa on the Tabasco Scale! Is the zestiness of your faith just starting to warm up like the Green Sauce (and praise God if it is!), or is your commitment as a Christian growing and becoming zesty like the Pepper Sauce, or is you spiritual salsa fire hot for Jesus Christ like the Jabenero Sauce? I can’t answer that question for you, but you can. Becoming a fully committed Christian does not happen over night—it’s a process—so where you on the spiritual Tabasco scale is not a matter of right or wrong, it’s a matter of spiritual growth. So, take a moment to circle the heat level of your spiritual salsa on your sermon outline. (Pause) Now let me ask you a question: is your heart beginning to feel some holy heartburn? The spicier your spiritual salsa becomes, the hotter your heart will burn to serve Jesus in a significant way. If your heart is heating up with the love of Jesus Christ, then do something about it.
