Summary: Do you say "Our Father" on Sunday and then act like an orphan the rest of the week? It’s time that we Christian’s get fired up. Let’s see what happens when we or our Churhes do!
I love the story about the time a Pastor was called in the middle of the night only to hear that his Church was being engulfed with flames.
Upon his arrival he witness a business owner he’d had been inviting to attend the Church over the last three years without success assisting the fire department in extinguishing the flames.
Following the aftermath, the Pastor trying to find something good from the rubble said to the businessman, "Well, Frank this is the first time I’ve seen you at our Church..." he replied, "You’re right Pastor and this is the first time I’ve ever seen your Church on Fire too!"
Funny but it’s true, some have never seen us or our Churches ablaze about anything! It’s long over due. But, it won’t happen until we understand what a fire can do for us all!
I. It Will Endue Us With Power (20:1-3)
II. It Will Equal Our Position (20:4-6)
III. It Will Evangelize Our Priorities (20:7-9)
Conclusion: Do you feel the burn?
