THE WHOLE ENCHILADA!

DON’T YOU ENJOY AMERICAN SLANG? IN SPANISH IT MEANS A TORTILLA FILLED WITH A MEAT AND MAYBE A CHOICE OF VEGETABLES. AMERICANS PROBABLY TOOK THE PHRASE FROM COSTA RICA, WHERE IT ALSO MEANS “ALL WRAPPED UP”. SO, WHEN YOU HEAR THE PHRASE ‘THE WHOLE ENCHILADA’, IT SIMPLY MEANS ‘ALL THERE IS’.

IS YOUR FAITH YOUR WHOLE ENCHILADA? IS GOD MORE IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE THAN ANYTHING ELSE?

DO YOU READ YOUR BIBLE EVERY DAY? DO YOU START AND END EVERY DAY IN PRAYERS? HOW ABOUT UNSCHEDULED PRAYERS DURING THE DAY? WHAT ABOUT THANKING GOD BEFORE EVERY MEAL? DO YOU PRAY FOR OTHERS WHO ARE IN THE MIDST OF HEARTACHE, FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, HEALTH ISSUES, DEALING WITH FAMILY SITUATIONS OR WITH PERSONAL EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS? ARE YOU JOINING WITH OTHERS IN WORSHIP? ARE YOU CONTRIBUTING TO THE FINANCIAL NEEDS OF YOUR CHURCH? DO YOU VOLUNTEER THRU AN OUTREACH MINISTRY? DO YOU TEACH OTHERS OF THE FAITH GOD HAS GIVEN YOU? DO YOU SIMPLY LIVE YOUR LIFE AS GOD (NOT YOU) DESIRES?

IS YOUR FAITH IN GOD YOUR ‘WHOLE ENCHILADA’…OR IS YOUR FAITH JUST AN INGREDIENT?

“GUIDE ME IN YOUR TRUTH AND TEACH ME, FOR YOU ARE GOD MY SAVIOR, AND MY HOPE IS IN YOU ALL DAY LONG.” PSALM 25:5 NIV
