Food trucks are becoming more and more popular these days with people waiting in lines for their edible fare in business areas, parks and neighborhoods. Wherever the wheels can go, the food can be offered to the people who want it.
Food trucks are a good example of what we as Christians can provide to the people yet to know Christ. St. Paul said, “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings” (1 Corinthians 9:22-23). We, like food trucks, can individually serve different things to different people in the name of the Lord. We can supply sympathy to one who is sad. We can give strength to one who is weak. We can dish up Scripture to those who are seeking to inwardly digest the Word. Our efforts do not need to be fixated on one type of outreach or a single verse we personally may like. We need to always adjust and change and be a blessing in various ways to all sorts of people.
People have different tastes in how they want food presented to them. So too they have different ways of receiving the message of salvation that resonates more to them than other ways. Our task as Christ’s disciples is to be ready to travel, quick to get on the road to where God’s Word is needed most, and aware of what fare from Scripture will satisfy the spiritual palates of those we encounter. In the end, may all those we serve, “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8).
