Sitting in a Southern restaurant wondering why the staff hasn’t heard of a chicken and tomato biscuit with mayonnaise.
Does the staff realize what they’ve been missing?
Everyone should have the opportunity to devour one of these at least once in their lifetime.
Summertime invokes the desire for a fresh slice of tomato on every sandwich. That is, if the tomato is freshly picked from the garden. Who cares for an unripe tomato — unless they’re fried, of course.
We wonder about people who don’t know about things we suppose they should know. Yet, how can they know if no one has told them?
Let me introduce you to the chicken and tomato biscuit.
Cut a freshly baked biscuit in half. Slather each half with your favorite mayonnaise.
Don’t forget the tomato!
Slice a ripe tomato. Place one or two slices on the biscuit. Salt and pepper if you like.
Add a piece of chicken, and wallah, you’re in for a treat.
Have a napkin handy.
Something else you may be missing
While we’re enjoying our biscuits, let me introduce you to something even more wonderful.
I forget how many people don’t know about it. Yet, I am reminded that people are ignorant of the knowledge of this. They don’t know that they are kept from this because of their lack of understanding.
Why do they not understand? Is it because they haven’t been told?
How can anyone partake of something to which they have never been exposed?
Let me introduce you to Truth
Let me introduce you to Truth. Truth is a living eternally-existent Being.
In Truth resides all truth. When someone does not know Truth, they do not realize Who they are missing.
Some people simply do not understand that they are alienated or separated from the eternal life that resides in Truth.
Who wouldn’t want to know Truth?
Who wouldn’t want to partake of the eternal life that resides in Him?
To know Truth is to be set free.
In fact, knowing Truth sets a person free from the blindness of his or her heart (John 8:32).
Truth then sends His Spirit to guide that person into all truth (John 16:13). Everyone who knows Truth hears His voice of truth as it is spoken unto them (John 18:37b).
Where can truth be found? Truth is found in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:21).
All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge reside in Christ (Colossians 2:3). The great wonder is that He wants us to partake of those treasures.
Just as that chicken and tomato biscuit fills the longing in our hungry stomachs, Truth fills the longing in our hungry hearts.
Don’t miss Truth by not knowing Truth
Just ask Truth to fill you with truth. He will remove any blindness in your heart, and you will no longer be alienated from the life that is found only in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 4:18).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
By the way, I hope you enjoyed your chicken and tomato biscuit. Invite Jesus to eat the next one with you.
