I spoke with a lady a while back, who told me she had never eaten at a McDonalds, ever! Never, not even once. She had never eaten a McChicken, a Big Mac, an Egg McMuffin or McDonalds’ Fries. I didn’t know that such a person existed in Canada. I mean, think about it, how could you go eighty-two years without ever having darkened the door of a McDonalds? I have always believed that when I got to heaven, that just inside the Pearly Gates, there would be the Golden Arches. And so I did what any caring individual would do, I took her to the closest McDonalds.
I am sure there are others out there, who have never tasted McDonalds’ food and that is a shame.
Do you know there are people in our community, who have never been inside a church and they have never tasted God’s grace? And that is a tragedy.
If by some bizarre choice, you have never experienced McDonalds fries, your loss is temporal, although you might get to try them in heaven. But if you’ve never experienced Christ’s forgiveness, your loss will be forever. And forever is a long time, especially without a Big Mac and Fries. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
