“The analogy of the pizza man” (Poem)

“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 gives the pizza over to you in a really nice warm box
You thank the man very much and give 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
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.
