Time To Refire!
I’m looking to be contagious, are you? I’m not talking in the negative sense of the word, but in the positive sense. I want to be so on fire for Jesus and so passionate about my faith that others can’t help but catch it. There won’t be an immunization ever made that can cure what I’m carrying. I’m a carrier of the most powerful, most infectious, most amazing, Most High God. And I want everyone I contact to get what I’ve got!
John Wesley once said, “I set myself on fire and people come to watch me burn.” That’s what I’m talking about!
Are you so passionate about your relationship with Jesus that you tell everyone you meet? Do the people around you know you are a Christian? Do they have a desire to have what you have?
My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you. Psalm 69:9 (The Passion Translation, TPT)
God called David a man after His own heart. It is evident from the Psalms that David had a fiery passion for the Lord and for His house. Would God say the same for us?
For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29 (NKJV)
We need to let a zeal and passion for the things of God take us over. We need to return to the intensity of our first love. We need to commit to seek Him like never before, to study and love His Word with renewed vigor, to share His love with revitalized excitement. If we allow our love for God to die down and become cool embers, then we have little more than the unsaved do- and that would be tragic.
He sacrificed himself for us that he might purchase our freedom from every lawless deed and to purify for himself a people who are his very own, passionate to do what is beautiful in his eyes. Titus 2:14 (The Passion Translation, TPT)
Light it up people! It’s time to refire!
