Romans 12:2 :The morning cup of coffee

Romans 12:2 and the first sip of my morning coffee

Its importance can’t be praised enough. My morning cup of coffee is what separates me from my alter-ego, the one with the fangs and green hair. Not a pretty picture, I realize, but an accurate depiction of a caffeine-free morning.

The ritual is the same: same mug, the same brand of coffee, same granules of sugar, few drops of milk, stir, sip slowly, exhale deeply in relief! When the milk is replaced by coffee mate (during Coptic fast periods when dairy is eliminated) my enjoyment is somewhat affected but my fangs still retreat in defeat.
In order to expedite the transformation, I decided to pour my magical concoction in a “to-go” thermos type mug.
Same ingredients, same ratios.
I took the first sip in my car. Shock and disbelief!
It simply did not taste the same. In fact, my fangs grew longer, the hair became greener and a third arm was trying to sprout from my left shoulder.
How could the simple change in vessels alter my beverage from sweet nectar to the brew of the wicked witch?
The metal interacts differently with the coffee than the ceramic does.
Like I do.
I interact differently whether I am near the vine or grafted onto it. Same person; different life.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
God Bless,
