A Call to Simple Worship: Why is coffee so good?

Coffee, that sweet swirly muddy water of goodness, is the hot liquid of brew that steeped to a desired strength, lifts the very lids off your eyes if not also one’s own sleepy morning, like sunshine on the dew.

Yes, those who partake of coffee for the morning need only may not also swallow it down out of enjoyment; yet, the wonder of coffee is not denied by those that do not know its wonders.

But, why? Why is coffee so good?
Let us be simple about this, in the sense that the simplest is the best:

God is good. He is good to us in giving someone a long time ago the ability to figure out the making of coffee. This is an example of how our attitude should be one of thankfulness, gratitude, worship, praise to our wonderful, over-abundantly gracious God, in everything.

I Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Why do we compartmentalize worship?
Like, 90% of our prayer/talking with God is only before we eat something. Worship (and prayer I Thessalonians 5:16-18) are not to “formalized” or “special” things in the sense of setting them on a pedastal, that becomes unattainable or not done except “at certain times.” This is like the saying that, “Everybody’s believes in God in an emergency.” We just put our worship and prayer and regard for God into the realm of the deist, the person that believes in a God that is impersonal, or an agnostic, those that don’t care because they ultimately don’t think God cares.

God cares! God is personal. God’s purpose for creating man is for relationship… not religion, not for impersonal formalized nonsense. Relationship is the whole point. Love between God and the individual is the whole point.

So let us love God, who first loved us (Romans 5:8; I John 4:7-12)!
