âWell hello, hello; and welcome back to the âLetâs Get Baked With Bettyâ show. Iâm sure all of us who watched the show last week are stillâover-cookedâwith the recipe Betty demonstrated for the âIâm Forgiven Upside-Down Cakeâ. Now that sure was some kind of baking she taught us! Now we all know âIâm Forgivenâ; and why am I forgiven? Say it with me nowââIâm forgiven because Christ died for meâ. Great job!
âNow Iâd like to welcome our host, but not the âstarâ, of our showâMiss Betty Disciple!â (The audience goes wild as Betty enters the stage from the left.) âGood morning Betty; you look bright and fresh, are you ready to begin?â
âOf course I am announcer Sam! Iâm always ready to share my recipes for good living with every one I meet!â
âWell there you have it folks! Miss Betty is ready! Take it away Betty.â
âThanks Sam. Hello Everyone!â (Audience replies with a hearty hello!) âIâm so glad you could join me today as I bake up one of my favorite desserts, Humble Pie!â (Everyone claps and cheers with excitement.)
âNow to begin with we need a mixing bowl; this one will do just fine. Ok, now letâs get our list of ingredients together: fear, serving, and love.â
âFirst we will take love and place it in our mixing bowl. Remember this is not any ordinary love. Actually we need to make sure this is a double sided love. Double sided love is sometimes hard to find, but I think if you really examine what Jesus did for you on the cross of Calvary you will begin to discover a double sided love. You see our first ingredient has got to be Godâs agape love for us. His love for us is unconditional; thatâs the kind of love that really works in all kinds of recipes, it works miracles when added to a variety of other ingredients like: hope, repentance, joy, prayer, and the list could go on and on.â
âSo our love we are adding here is firstly, Godâs love; but thatâs not all there is to our first ingredient. We also need to make sure that our love for God is stuck together in this cup of love. Of course, if we really understand what God has done for us, it wonât be hard to throw in your love!â
âLetâs see, we have a cup of love in our bowl. Now we need to add fear!â (Audience gasps, no one likes fear.) âWait a minute! This fear is a really good fear; itâs the fear of the Lord. This is a really healthy ingredient. If you search through Proverbs you will find many wonderful effects the fear of the Lord will have on your life.â
âWe will add our fear now; really this fear could be called a reverence for the Lord. There it goes into our bowl. Oh look at how beautiful this mixture is looking already!â
âNow for our last ingredient; oh were did I put it?â (Betty searches for the missing substance.) âThere it is! Sometimes serving likes to try to hide; but weâve found it! Sometimes weâd just rather not help, we donât want to use our time and energy for others. However, serving is a rather large ingredient we need in order to complete our humble pie. So donât forget, if âyourâ serving is trying to disappear, remember Jesus served and set the greatest example for us. Not only that, but God promises us great rewards for giving to others.â
âAll right then, in goes are last ingredient andâŚOh this is wonderful! Itâs turning out perfect. Now we just need to find a container to keep our mixture in. HmmmâŚIâve got it! Letâs keep our humble pie safely and securely in our hearts! See you all next week! Thanks for joining me!â
âThere you have it folks, another awesome recipe from Betty Disciple! This is Announcer Sam saying let make sure we all remember to eat some of our humble pie each and every day! God bless you!â
