I am not responsible for bouts of depression, excessive coffee intake, and burst frappuccino bubbles. Read this post at your own risk.
I strode determinedly into my local Starbucks, intent upon one thing: the Java Chip Frappuccino. I had been told by scores of people that it was amazing - a pure delight to the very soul.
So I purchased it! I wasn't holding back - I ordered the Venti-sized drink and made my way to the nearest table to savor its rich, dark-roasted goodness.
Wrong. One sip, and I realized the earth-shattering truth. It was a bunch of fluff. No substance, no power, no coffee flavor! I sipped it again, my confusion mounting. How could this be? This was supposed to be coffee!
When I finally finished that huge mixture of coffee-less milk and sugar, I made one final resolve. I wasn't going to be a fluff-drinker. I was a dark-roasted, strong, aromatic espresso-blend drinker. No luke-warm, half-way, riding-the-fence sort of coffee for me. I left Starbucks, new resolve governing my steps...
"Ye are the light of the world". In other words, be the espresso in a frappuccino world. Stand out - be strong - be powerful. Make a difference - inspire others - be bold. Let your aroma be pleasing to the Lord and to others.
Don't be a half-way, luke-warm, riding-the-fence sort of Christian. Be espresso.
New resolve, emboldened Christians, and the aroma of espresso.
