LET YOUR FIRE KEEP BURNING
Read Leviticus 6:8-13
A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out (Leviticus 6:13)
Many of us use rechargeable lambs in our houses, we quickly detect when it goes dim in its brightness after some use. It comes to our notice immediately that we have to recharge it. When we fail to recharge our cell phones, they switch off and are of no use at that time, unless we plug them to the source of power to recharge them.
Meanwhile, some people don’t like their cell phones’ batteries to go low or get switched off. So they provide themselves with mobile power banks, extra batteries, etc. It is so unfortunate that many Christians notice the backwardness in their spiritual lives, but keep working, preaching, serving, and/or singing, as if nothing is wrong. This is spiritual self-deception.
So many things do drain the Christian’s spiritual fire. Many activities without connectivity with God bring dullness in the spirit.
The moment a Christian is not passionately connected to God, he cannot produce the right fire. As a pastor, evangelist, song leader, Sunday School teacher, etc., after the ‘powerful ministration’, do you go back to God to renew, recharge, and re-empower yourself in Him?
The fastest thing that drains a Christian’s fire is sin.
At that point, you are weak in your prayer life, reading the Bible, evangelistic outreach, attitude to errors around you, etc., because of guilt of sin. The way out is to confess your sins and return to your Source – God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is waiting for you to rekindle your fire in Him.
- Father, set my life on fire for Your use, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord Jesus, rekindle Your fire in the bones of our church workers.
- Oh Lord, deliver Your Church from the spirit of lukewarmness.
