Keep the Flame Burning


I want to share something that I've learned in the Bible study I'm in the middle of right now. It's a Beth Moore study about the original tabernacle. I think that I skipped over much of the book of Leviticus. However, there's some cool stuff in there. Lev 9:23-24 says, "Moses and Aaron then went into the Tent of Meeting. When they came out, they blessed the people; and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. Fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell facedown." The original altar was lit by the Lord Himself.

Lev 6:12 says, "The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it." I did not know this! They had to keep that fire going. Beth Moore says, "God lit the fire, but humans had to fuel it."

Now, 2 Timothy 1:6-7 says, "For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline." Another thing that Beth Moore says is "Power is up to God. Participation is up to us." You see, God lights the initial fire, but it's up to us to keep it burning.

This got me to thinking. Am I keeping the flame burning everyday of my life? Am I praying and spending time with the Lord in order to keep that flame ablaze? Am I developing my gifts for the Lord? Are you?

Hello. This is sarahbeth. Anyway i just wanted to say i am glad you shared that on your blog. I have been thinking about this. Because me and my sister are trying out for all-state choir, and i was thinking am i doing this for me or for the Lord so people can come to know him through what i enjoy doing. Thanks for those scripture references too. ~Sarahbeth with an H age 13

I'm doing that BM study with a goup of girls I get together with every week. We LOVE it. We're just on wk7. There's sme serious work in there but some AWSOME revelations. The part that you will come to next week about feet (will say no more!) is my highlight so far!

Also I loved the imagery of the verses that you blogged on. It reminded me so much of 'You have forgotten your first love'. Just focusing your heart and affections on Jesus, like a flame for a lover would be fanned if you did that. And my challenge for 2009 is t do that more, I so easily loose focus. I'm like a magpie, distracted by anything shiny and new!
