The Feed Tray

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…(Colossians 3:16)

The trick to getting the old M60 machine gun to fire correctly was making sure the ammo was placed in the feed tray correctly. If you placed the belted ammo in just slightly off, you would turn your machine gun into a 21 pound sniper rifle (and not a very good one at that). A machine gun is designed to spit out a bunch of bullets not just one. You know, God kind of designed you like a machine gun. We put the Word of Christ in us and teachings and admonitions come spiting out. A properly loaded Christian just can’t help it; it’s what he or she was designed to do. But remember, spaying a lot of bullets doesn’t make a good gunner. Hitting the target makes a good gunner. Practice makes perfect.

Application: Try this…write this verse on a 3x5 and begin to memorize it. Then ask a friend (Christian or non) to test you. You will be loading and firing in no time.
