Do You Want More, Donuts?

Acts 2:41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

If someone were to ask me if I wanted more money I would say, YES!!!
If someone were to ask me if I wanted more coffee, I would say, YES!!
If someone were to ask me if I wanted more Krispy Kreme Donuts, I would say, YES!!

But now when someone asks me if I wanted more coffee I will probably say no. A couple of cups and I’m done.

If someone were to ask me if I wanted more Krispy Kreme Donuts, I would probably say No. (Even though I did have 4 the other day, that was a treat, not a regular event like it used to be.)

I’m getting picky about what I say yes to. Every time I say yes to something I have to recognize that I am saying no to something else. Yes to the donuts means saying no to good health. Sorry, I like healthy.

FYI - No ever asks me if I want more money. Hmmmm!

3,000 people said yes to a simple sermon and the conviction of the Holy Spirit. 3,000 people were saying yes to, “I want more of Jesus.” 3,000 people said yes to allowing Him to change their lives.

But what were they saying no to?  Their lives being in bondage to sin. Living a life without Godly purpose or direction. The hopelessness that comes from being powerless to do anything.

So the question that you need to ask yourself today is, “Do I Want More?”

PRAY: Dear Jesus, I need more of you today. AMEN.
