Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Lev.6:8 - 7:10)
"Taking Care of the Fire"
"A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out."
Taking Care of the Fire on the altar is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
It was the duty of the Priests to care for this fire. It must 'never go out,' it must 'always be burning.' In other words, 'it required continual maintenance and Care. The first fire on this altar came from heaven, (Exod.40:34) when God's Glory filled the Tabernacle. So after this, it was the responsibility of the priests to keep 'Heaven's fire' burning continually for all burnt offerings.
God's part is to Bring the Fire, our part is to Care for the Fire!
Here's the picture of our life, Warrior. Our journey with our Commander began when we laid down our life and all our mess of sin as a living sacrifice (Rom.12:1) on the altar of repentance. Our Commander Brought the Fire of His Perfect Love and consumed our Sacrifice with His Perfect Love! This became our First And Only True Love. We Love Him because He First Loved Us (1John 4:19); and consumed us with the Fire of His Perfect Love. Oh Wow, remember that moment.......
As Warrior's one of the things we do every day is 'Take Care Of The Fire' on His Altar in our heart. We do this by meeting with our Commander for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. As we set this time apart for Him, chew on His Word, listen to His voice, and enjoy the thrill of His presence - 'our heart burns with our passionate Love for Him....... and the original fire that consumed us when we first met Him roars again on our altar. We are His Warriors, His flames of fire! (Heb.1:7).
Don't be so caught up in the fight for righteousness that we are engaged in today, that we miss our date with our Commander (Rev.2:4-5). Make the time to meet with Him and remember and rehearse what great things He has done in your life (1Sam.2:24); and let the Fire of your First Love consume you! Take Care of the Fire! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side
