So many times, while watching celebrity preachers on TV, I've listened to sermons that treat our relationship to God as one would treat a genie or as if God were some sort of coke machine. You know. Put in your tithe money. Press a prayer button a whalah, an ice cold request instantaneously answered. If not answered, well then, just keep feeding in more money until you get the desired results. Just have faith....the coke machine will work eventually. All the while, so many fail to teach, it is God pushing our buttons and waiting to see what we will produce for Him.
