Where's the Fire

Matt Richards

Romans 12 Never lag in zeal and in earnest endeavor ; be aglow and burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord.
--- Leviticus 6:12 Meanwhile, the fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must never go out. Each morning the priest will add fresh wood to the fire and arrange the burnt offering on it. He will then burn the fat of the peace offerings on it.

---- You know we can and need to be on fire for Jesus. You can be on fire for Jesus again. This year i went to a fireworks display but i was disappointed because there was no fire. I found myself asking where is the fire.? There's just something about a fire. Attractive, warning magnificent. Several years ago i went to bonfire night and found the fire there was one hundred metres away roped off because of health n safety. I couldn't feel it, couldn't get close to it. I heard the Holy Spirit say that's like the church.(ouch) We want to make it so politically safe and user friendly that the fire is somewhere contained in the distance. (maybe in the backroom or none at all) John the baptist said of Jesus; ' He will baptise you with the Holy Ghost and fire.' Oh for the Holy Ghost and Fire. Don't let the fire go out. Feed the flame with worship, with the Word, with prayer today. Be a man a glow, a woman a glow. Burn with Holy passion for Jesus. You need, i need the church needs, to be on fire for Jesus. So today Holy Spirit is asking of me and the church: Where is the fire? Prayer:

Father i have let the fire go down. I have neglected to feed it daily. Forgive me. Blow into the embers of my life that i might burn again in Jesus name amen.
