This has nothing to do with my mashed potatoes post, and yet it also has everything to do with my mashed potatoes post. I was working on preparing potatoes for becoming mashed potatoes. As I peeled them, cleaned them, and then cubed them, thinking about God along the way, it struck me as a fitting metaphor for The Christian Church (or The Body of Christ). Every potato (human) is a little different. Preparing potatoes to become mashed (humans for heaven) requires peeling (saving). Christ is the potato peeler, the peels are the Sin of humans. As the potatoes become peeled (saved) - some of the dirt from other peels gets on the peeled potatoes. When Humans come into contact with Sin, we once again become tempted to Sin (potatoes get dirty again). Jesus is also the faucet that washes off the dirt - He's multifaceted like that ;). Once the potatoes get mashed, it becomes a uniform (tasty) mass that all support one another. However, the cook (God) notices when one of the potatoes is missing, the body is incomplete!
I apologize if the metaphorical mind of mine went on a really wide tangent that I'm doing a terrible job explaining. However, Kirk Cameron is a potato. So am I. Someday, we'll all be a part of the Body of Heaven, mashed together for eternity in one quite scrumptious future!
