An excerpt from the book “Would You Like Fries With That? 101 Easy Ways to Share Your Faith” by Mike Silva
The other day I was putting salt and pepper on my hamburger and ketchup on my fries. As I looked at the shakers and bottle, I thought of a great analogy. Just like the wordless book, these three items could be used to present the gospel message.
In the pepper shaker, the dark specks remind us of all our sins and mistakes. The pure white specks in the salt shaker represent God and his purity. The question is: how do we go from the dirty-looking pepper to clean salt?
The answer is the shed blood of Jesus Christ. This is where the ketchup comes in. When Jesus died on the cross, his blood was shed so that we could be cleansed from our unrighteousness.
The ketchup bottle represents the only answer for changing who we are and what we want to be.
So the next time you go for a hamburger and fries with a friend, and you see those items on your table, take the opportunity to explain this wonderful reminder of God’s unconditional love for us.
Please pass the salt!
The Bible Says:
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the LORD,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.”
“There is simply no way to comprehend the full implications of the love the King of Kings and Lord of Lords has for us” James Dobson
