"Fuel For The Fire"

"Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth".  Proverbs 26:20
If you have ever built a fire you know that in order for the fire to continue burning it has to have a fuel source.  If you don't keep putting wood, gasoline or some other flammable material on it it will die out.  It doesn't matter how big the fire is nor how long it has been burning, it will not sustain itself without replenishing the fuel source. 
Spiritually speaking we have a "fire" in us-- a fire of passion for the Lord; a fire of desire for the things of God; a fire of praise to God.  That "fire" has to be constantly rekindled as well.  If not it will wane or die out.  How do we keep the "fire" of the Lord burning in our lives?  We have to keep adding fuel to it.  
The fuel that keeps our spirits alive and burning brightly is spiritual in nature.  That fuel is prayer.  It is also Bible reading, studying and application.  It is being around other Christians and sharing the Word, testimony and revelations of the Lord.  It is keeping full of the Holy Spirit.  It is also praise and worship.  When we neglect these things, we are not putting fuel on the fire of our spiritual life in Christ.  When we do these things periodically, or spend only a little time adding them, we are letting the fire get low.  The fire within us must be fed regularly and often in order to keep it burning brightly.

Have a great day.  Don't let the fire go out.
