But God- What A Feast!


But God Image_Color_CrossLet's continue our journey through the 23rd Psalm. David has now seen his Shepherd 'prepare a table before him in the presence of his enemies.' If you'd like to get an idea of the menu, turn to 2nd Samuel 17:27 & 28. What a feast it must have been. BUT, there is so much more going on here than meets the eye. Our Shepherd knows that we much more than physical beings. He know we are in truth spirit beings that have bodies. And He know that in the same way our bodies get hungry and eventually starve to death if not fed, so it is with our spirits. What is the food for our spirits you ask? Jesus answers that in John 6:35- 'I am the bread of life; he who comes to me will not hunger, and he who believes in me will never thirst.' He feeds us with Himself! Later, in John 6:53, Jesus says this- 'Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life.'

Jesus is making it very clear that He, Himself, is our meal. He is our bread. He has prepared the meal for us and He is the meal! If you have never received Him as your life giving bread, I ask that you consider doing so now. There is nothing you need to do- you don't need to wash up first or anything else- simply acknowledge you are hungry and thank Him for preparing the meal for you. He has promised that He would enjoy sitting down and having a nice long dinner with you. The table is set, the meal is ready, hungry? Let's eat!







If you want to know what someone really thinks, just listen to what they say after the word ‘but’ …so it is here with…”but God!”“


Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of messages of past years and months from Thomas. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.


You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?” Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16 inscription our outreach. In every new ScentBlocker jacket there is a laminated waterproof pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.


What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our business!


I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
