Have you seen our posts on Instagram or Facebook or heard on the news about the fires consuming western North Carolina? Firefighters from all over the country have come to our area over the past few weeks trying to contain and extinguish thousands of acres of forest. More than 50,000 acres have been affected. Although investigations are still ongoing, the fires were believed to have been set on purpose.
The smoke has finally lifted here at camp and we are able to breathe crisp, clean air again, The spiritual parallel is tangible.
Every day we are surrounded by people living dry and deadened lives. If we follow Jesus, I can’t help thinking how quickly His life-giving love would spread if we were simply passionate for Christ. Our moments alone with Him, where His Word comes alive and we personally hear from Him, grows a passion for Him that can’t be quenched.
Having a passion for Jesus would not only light us on fire but would set a fire everywhere we went. Before long, we’d see God setting a classroom, a family, a small group, a youth group, a work place, a sports team, a friendship on fire! A fire of life in Christ bringing heaven to earth, attracting the glory of God and affecting the lives of every thirsting soul around.
We have the power of the Spirit living within us to help us set ablaze the hearts of people in our sphere of influence for the glory of God. Catch the passion of Christ personally, then walk in the Spirit, spreading the love of God like wildfire!
