Like a Fire

Jeremiah 20:9 “But if I say, ‘I will not mention him or speak any more in his name,’ his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”

Football season is here. Fans wear their favorite team’s Tee shirt, jacket or cap. They travel to watch the games. Regardless of the ticket cost, they want the best seats. They hang the flag of their favorite team in front of their home.

Do we have that same enthusiasm for God’s Word? How far will we travel to attend a church service or Bible study?

Can we say like Jeremiah that we cannot hold God’s Word in? Do our friends and neighbors know we are Christians?

What temperature is our fire?

Dear God, light the fire of my heart for your Word. Amen.

Application: What day this week will you share God’s Word with unsaved friends and neighbors?
