The Old Coke Machine

Heard a great sermon on Exodus 32 last night by my old minister Ben Shaw. One of the stories he told was about this old Coke machine that is in Tim Keller’s apartment building. When he puts the coins in they always get stuck and he has to rattle the coke machine and bang on the side until the coins get to where they are supposed to go. Tim Keller says that at his church, Redeemer New York, his congregation is like the old coke machine in that he has to shake people up and bang people on the side to get them to “get it”, for them to understand what Christianity is all about. As Ben puts it this is a universal application in that all Christians sometimes need a shake up and a hit on the side to get them fully understand the core issues of Christianity. It’s easy to coast as a Christian but we always need to be reminded of the key truth.
