How to Use This Theme

- Discipleship. Like the rich young ruler in the biblical story, often we want the fast, easy method of preparation. But the microwave method of life often yields nasty or ruined meals. There are no shortcuts to true discipleship. (Matt 19:13-22)
- Patience. In a microwave oven, instant gratification world, it can be difficult to wait for the fulfillment of God’s promises. But we can be assured that the things God speaks come to pass. (Gen 12:1-7, Heb 6:10-15)
- Prayer. Jesus exhorts us to not heap up prayers full of empty calories, but in our conversations with God to offer meaningful, real words spoken from the heart. (Matt 6:7-15)
- Sin. Like an explosion in the microwave oven, the cravings and desires that are born in our sinful desires are destined for ruin. (I John 2:15-17)
