Working itself into a Sermon somehow....

Have you ever noticed that most casseroles are made of the same "stuff"?
  • Meat
  • Starch
  • Veggie
  • Sauce
  • Seasonings
  • Topping
  • 350 for 30 minutes.
Tuna casserole = Tuna + Noodles + Little Green Peas + Cream of Mushroom + black pepper + cracker and cheese topping. All mixed together but the topping and baked.

Curried Chicken = Chicken + Rice + Spinach + Cream of Mushroom with Mayo + curry + cheese topping. Layered (rice, spinach, chicken with sauce, cheese) and baked.

Chicken and Stovetop = Chicken + Stovetop Dressing + small can of corn + Cream of Chicken with milk + sage and pepper + cheese topping. Mix all but topping and baked.

Sometimes elements are missing, but the casserole is still perfect

Vidalia Onion Casserole = crushed crackers + chopped Vidalia onions + sauce (2 eggs, 1 stick melted butter, grated cheese) + cheese topping. Baked.

Pineapple Casserole = pineapple + (cheese, flour and sugar) + cracker topping. Baked.

All somehow the same, but all different and for different purposes.

Christians = Bible Study + willing spirit + Holy Spirit + Prayer + Mission or Service + Fellowship + Worship for an hour in Community

Are some ingredients always necessary? Are there optional ingredients? What's our seasoning? Are WE the seasoning?
