1 Corinthians 10:31  So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.                                                        ( or barbecue…my passion 🙂 )

2 Timothy 2:15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (Studying the bible is like spiritual BBQ-ing)

Today I’m going to BBQ for my husband and dad for tomorrows Superbowl dinner.  Being from New York you can see how important this is for my men folk!

I want to share something about myself….I LOVE TO BARBEQUE!!!!!  Ask my family…it’s my total passion.  I make my own rubs and sauces and love to cook in my smoker pit.  It takes me hours to make my special sauces.  I make different flavors such as my stick to your fingers BBQ sauce, mustard BBQ sauce, raspberry sauce, garlic sauce and on and on.  It takes a day to make up my different meat rubs.  I have one for chicken, ribs and seafood.  When I BBQ or smoke meat… there is a certain taste that I’m looking for.  It’s got to be just right or I won’t be satisfied and will do it again until I get it just right.  I can’t even eat other people’s BBQ because… if it’s too tough or not seasoned just right… I can’t get into it. My 6 adult children and husband said they compare other BBQ to mine also.  I spoiled them!

So you might say at this point…what in Pete’s name does this have to do with bible scriptures?

Well my husband has a passion for God’s word like I have for barbecuing.  He has his different rubs which are his NIV bible and his 365 days through the bible.  He uses different sauces such as the Strongs, the Naves, certain commentaries and other bible study tools. My husband’s passion for  word of God is something to behold.  He goes over God’s word like I watch over my slow cooking meat.  When I smell that smoke I know that meat is going to taste good.  When my husband goes over God’s word he knows that word in him is going to produce a good thing…not only in him but with whoever he shares that word with.  He is a minister so knowing God’s word is a very good thing.  My husband’s passion for God’s word has helped me so much with my Christian walk and I’m so grateful that I’m married to a great scripture barbecuer…this man can cook….I mean…rightly divide the word of God.

What’s your passion?  Mine is my family and BBQ-ing ….But my main passion is bible study,  prayer,  serving and worshiping my God.   We should all be very passionate about the word of God!!  Gotta go now and get cookin’…I mean studying the scriptures…now that’s some real…BBQ-ing!!

Message for today: Let’s all be passionate about what?……Studying God’s word.
