Psalm 139:23-Search me [thoroughly], O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts (NIV).
Toss four cups of chopped onions with four cups of grated cheddar cheese. Pack the mix into a deep pie plate lined with pastry. It will seem to be too full. Pay no attention.
Stick all the mix into that pie shell. Add a top crust, pierce it, and plop it in the oven. Bake at 425 degrees F. for ten minutes and then 350 degrees for another 30-35. Serve it hot or cold. Yum!
For a crowd, line a 9×13 baking dish with pastry, follow the rest of the instructions. Cut into two inch squares and serve.
Everyone will want a copy of the recipe. They won’t believe you when you tell them that the only ingredients are cheese, onions and pastry.
“Haven’t you forgotten something?” they query?
And I say, “Just try it.”
They do and when they serve this delicious dish to unbelieving others; they say “Just try it.”
Like my pie, some people don’t want to try Jesus. They look for some peculiar secret ingredient that will give them peace. They would rather follow outrageous rules or strange philosophies than believe that Jesus the Son of God, took human form, came to earth, was crucified for our sins and then raised from the dead.
I used to be like that too. Eventually, I invited Jesus into my life and then I found that elusive peace for myself.
When I tell my friends about Jesus, they try him for themselves and then they tell their friends and they say…………… and then they try him……and then their friends say….. And so on!
I invite you to try my pie….and my Jesus. Then let him try you.
