LETS START A FIRE!
In David’s psalm of repentance, Psalm 51:10-13, he says,
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.
This is my prayer this morning. Begin in me Lord. Cleanse my heart and restore my Joy IN YOU!
Elton Trueblood, a Quaker scholar wrote that “Evangelism occurs when Christians are so ignited by their contact with Christ that they in turn set other fires. It is easy to determine when something is aflame. It ignites other material. Any fire that does not spread will eventually go out.”
I never want to burn out or fizzle to the point that I stop GOING and SPREADING, DO YOU?
Today I challenge each of you to seek the Lord with all of your heart in order to reach those hearts that are lost and without Christ.
