What is a sandwich?

Put two slices of bread together or fold one slice in half and there you go -— a sandwich. A delicious, mouth-watering feast, right? Wait a minute. Does that sound right? Webster’s says no, and I would have to agree with them. There has to be that filling. THAT makes the sandwich!
(And if you’re on that carb diet, you shouldn’t even be eating that bread, so drop it!)
Our relationship with Christ is like a sandwich — please excuse the simple analogy.
It has to have substance — exhibited in the fruits of the Spirit.
Unless the ingredients are fresh, each grows crusty, stale, hard, moldy ... you get the picture -- or the turned stomach?
God wants us to maintain a fresh, growing relationship with Him. We have to stay committed. We have to stay motivated.
Most of all, we have to remember we are loved, blessed and highly favored!
