Stay By the Fire

“Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12 (NLT)

“Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.” James 4:8 (NLT)

When it is cold outside we naturally turn on the heat to keep ourselves warm. We cover ourselves with blankets and gather by the fire. We do what we can to protect ourselves from being affected by the harsh climate.

What are we doing to protect our hearts from going cold? Are we staying close to the fire of Christ? It is bitter cold in the world today and sin is rampant. With the actions of many people being uncharacteristic of God, what are we doing to keep our love from growing cold? We must draw near to God and let Him draw near to us. If we don’t stay close to the spiritual warmth of God’s love and deepening our knowledge of Him, we will allow situation and circumstance to offend us and cause us to fall away.

The colder it is in the world, the more we must run to the fire of God’s Word and receive His truth, receive His understanding and His Spirit. Refuse to sit and remain offended with anyone. Doing this will keep the enemy out and keep God’s love in.

Everyone will have their opinion of why someone is behaving the way they are, but you, let God show you the deeper meaning. In all your getting get understanding. Understanding and love are directly proportional. The more understanding you have from God about someone, the better you can relate to them. Let God bless you with understanding so that you can love better in this day and time. Draw close to Him and He will turn on the heat in your heart and increase your love capacity. It is cold outside. Stay by the fire.

Prayer: Father, thank You for speaking to me. It is cold and dark in this world. I draw near to You. Enlarge my heart and keep my love warm God. Don’t let me grow cold and callous. Help me stay by the warmth of Your presence and in Your Word. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and be glorified in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
