ALL YOU CAN EAT

2 Peter 1:12-21

Introduction:

In my opinion, one of the wisest decisions ever made in the food industry was the invention of the “All You Can Eat” buffet. Many restaurants only have this option and it has been very successful. Why?

> We like to see what we are going to eat before we eat it. You can choose food that is appealing to you. You can make sure the quality of the food you are going to eat is to your standards. You can see what is in it.

> We like to choose our portion size. You can get as much or as little as you want.

> We like to choose the types of food we eat. If you want a little extra desert and no vegetables- O.k. not a problem, (at least not with the restaurant). You can eat healthy, unhealthy, or in between- It’s all up to you.

What we eat spiritually is similar to an “All You Can Eat” buffet. You must decide what you listen to, what you believe, what you follow, etc…

2 Peter 1:12-15

As you eat of the Word of God…

1. Remember its nutritional value.

The Word of God is true. The Words within the Bible give us life. When we get to the end of our lives, it is the information within the Bible that will continue to give life. Jesus is the Bread of Life.

2 Peter 1:16-21

As you eat of the Word of God…

2. Remember its cost. Jesus came to this earth in the form of a man so that we could have hope. We don’t believe in words that were just made up. We trust in a Book that doesn’t contradict itself. We trust in a Book that can be proven true through history and through eye witnesses. We trust in a Book that has been written by God Himself.

As you eat of the Word of God…

3. Remember to choose the best. We need to pay attention the Word of God. Use it to be strengthened. Use it to lighten your path. Use it to give you the power you need to make the right choices.

Conclusion:

This series is about being able to have it all. Through the Word, we can have it all. We have the answers through the Living Word.

John 6:48-58

You can let a lot of thoughts, words, and ideas into your mind, but unless you eat of the Bread of Life you will not live forever.

Invitation:

**************LORD’S SUPPER*****************

As Peter was testifying about the power of Christ, I’m sure he remembered the Last Supper that Jesus had with His disciples before He was crucified on the cross for our sins.

As Christians we are also told to partake of the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of Jesus’ body and blood that was sacrificed for us.

We must all also understand that this ordinance of the church is only for Christians and the Bible strictly warns those that take of the Lord’s Supper that a non-Christian cannot partake.

1 Corinthians 11:27-34

Christians during this time examine your lives before you take of this Lord’s Supper.

BREAD: 1 Corinthians 11:23-24

WINE: 1 Corinthians 11:25-26
