“The analogy of the pizza man”
This is my analogy of the pizza man
He makes a fast delivery he does the best he can.
He brings it there right to your door and then he rings the bell
You can tell that it’s the pizza man you can tell just by the smell.
He hands the pizza over to you in a really nice warm box
You thank the man very much give a tip of a couple of bucks.
He thanks you very kindly for giving him that tip
As he heads back to the pizza shop to make another trip.
The pizza man he gets the thanks and he gets all the praise
But little does the customer know not one hand did he raise.
To get that nice warm pizza it was made behind the scenes
Someone had to make the dough prepare the meat and greens.
It took a lot of baking and prepping to make it right
Then it’s sliced, put in a box for delivery that night.
The pizza man delivers of what’s been done before
He passes on the goodness that feeds one, or maybe four.
This is what a Christian does, to preach, to sing, to share
To feed you when you’re hungry to show you that they care.
However, when someone hears the gospel songs they clap adorn and praise
Applaud the singer and the band with their hands they raise.
The preacher can be popular too depends on who he is
“Cause at the time when people cheer all applause is his.
We’re all just like the pizza man delivering something new
To feed the hungry sinful soul the one that’s in the pew.
The offering plate is passed around you give a little tip
Giving thanks and gratitude, for being fed and equipped.
The person though responsible for feeding every soul
Was prepared many years ago a long, long time ago.
Prepared in the background God prepared the only one
The one to represent Him would be His only Son.
Now when the time was ready God prepared the Holy Lamb
To die upon that awful cross it was God’s redemption plan.
Just like the pizza man my friend, delivering food to your soul
To feed your hungry appetite giving Christ to make you whole.
However, don’t praise us as we deliver, we’re doing it for the Lord
We deliver the message just on time according to His word.
So digest the word that you hear from us, whether preaching or in song
It will strengthen and nourish your seeking heart if you trust God all day long.
I’m only just the pizza man delivering some wholesome food
I give you all the ingredients………..the rest is up to you.
