Stoke The Flame

And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. ~ Deuteronomy 6:5-7NLT

God said we are to constantly talk about the things of God. The Romans picked up on that with their proverb “repetitio mater studiorum,” or “repetition is the mother of all learning.” We have to keep God at our center so that He can be our anchor in the storm. When our minds are constantly on other things, the fire within us dwindles. God isn’t going to stoke the fire for us. It’s our job to keep that fire in us burning through prayer, reading our bibles, worship, fasting, meditating on His Word, and discussing the Scripture.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. We can’t understand everything on our own; otherwise, we’d be the entire body of Christ. It takes discussion and learning from each other to grow. Iron sharpens iron.

I’m not saying you can’t enjoy talking about something other than the Bible, but we can’t let the secular stomp out the spiritual. Our heart and our mind should always be set on God so that we won’t stumble. So that our fire won’t dwindle.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Stoke The Flame.
