A Good Recipe

2 Kings 7:9 Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household.

The four leprous men upon discovering the abandoned Syrian army camp, decided they needed to share the good news with those back in the city of Samaria. Because they were lepers they were not permitted in the city, so they told the porter at the gate. The porter told the good news to the porters of the King’s household. They, in turn, told the King. The King then told the good news to the entire city! Good news is meant to be shared!

My wife Barb was telling me about a good recipe she found for Pasta E Fagioli. She made this Italian soup for a ladies fellowship at church. It was a big hit! She passed the recipe on to another lady who loved it. She in turn sent the recipe to a friend of hers in California.

That is common when someone comes across a good recipe, they pass it on! It makes the rounds quickly. They same can be said about finding a good restaurant, a good mechanic, a good dentist, or a good book. When we find a good thing, we are quick to recommend it to others.

The greatest recipe a person could have is the recipe of the Gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-4). It is the recipe of salvation! If there were ever a recipe that needed to be circulated, the Gospel recipe would be it! Sadly, a cookie recipe is often more readily passed around than the Gospel.

The Bible says, “O taste and see that the LORD is good...” (Ps. 34:8).

A devotional thought by Pastor Al Hughes

Friend, what about you??? Are you helping to spread the news of the Gospel, or are you too busy telling others about that new restaurant in town???
