ROARING FIRE PDF Print

“And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere, even beyond Macedonia and Achaia, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God.  We don’t need to tell them about it.”  1 Thessalonians 1:8 (NLT)

As the old saying goes: “You don’t have to advertise a fire!”

When we are burning bright for Christ it becomes apparent to the world.

The church in Thessalonica had such a flame going that everyone who came in contact with them was being singed and affected by their faith.  Paul states later in his letter to this church, that one of the most impressive proofs of their inward desire for Christ was their outward change.  They had turned from following the ways of the world and were living a God-focused life.

Living with a desire for the things of this world dampens our spirit, diminishes our flame, and darkens our walk . . . leaving our witness cold and lifeless.

Would it be possible for us to turn from our idols and live a Christ-centric life?  To do so requires a faith-walk that will set you in direct opposition with this gilded trap we call home.  But it’s the only possible way our small spark could ever catch hold and roar.

Let your wood begin to dry by seeking God’s guidance for your life today.  Just today!  Who knows it may become a holy-habit that will lead to a roaring fire!

– Dale
