Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:19
“Do not ignore the gifts of God.”
O my beloved God, fill me with live coals of fire within my heart. I do not want the fire to go out but to keep burning with its embers ablaze like it was at the day of Pentecost. Grant to every believer, every heart, every mouth, and every life that this fire shall burn deep within them and the churches. Father, we need the blood and fire of Christ Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit of God to be within us. Let us hear the hiss of the Blood of the Lamb as it flows gurgling around the coal. We claim this first; we claim the blood. Nothing else will do. I come to the Cross, and I seek the compassion of Christ my precious Lord. He purchased me on the Cross. I open up my whole nature to Him and believe His Blood has cleansed and purified me from all my sins. My past sins have gone, been blotted out, lost to view, and You do not remember them anymore. Praise and thanks be to God for all of His loving tender mercies He shows toward my life in Christ. Amen.
Lessons To Be Learnt
God shows us not to put out the Spirit’s fire He places within us. We must not toss aside anything the Holy Spirit gives us but use every single thing He places within our hearts. We need the live coals of the Spirit of God to be on fire within us. We must want His fire to burn deep within our hearts and want Him to use us. Knowing the Blood of Christ is very powerful against the enemy helps us to carry on. He wants us to know the power of His Blood and to use it through prayer. Every gift God has placed within each believer to glorify His name. He blots out all our past sins from view as He wants us to forget them as He does.
