Why Are We Not Moving?

It doesnt matter what kind of car you have.
 If its a Ford or a Ferrari.
 We all depend on one thing when we get in the car
 and turn the ignition. 
A spark.
 If theres no spark,
you may look nice sitting there,
 but your not going anywhere.
Your car may have the best coverage insurance can buy,
 it may be the cleanest car in your neighborhood,
 it may be in wonderful condition,
 people going by may wish they had as nice a car as you....
but it needs a spark to start it.
 If you want to go places in need a spark.
You need some passion.
 You need the fire of the Holy Ghost
A lot of us may
 look good, smell good, dress good,
 and many people may think we have it all together.
 But if theres not that passion for God,
if theres not that..spark...
chances are we are gonna be sitting in the exact same spot as we are right now,
5 years from now. 
Continuing on using the car analogy,
suppose everything is in working order on your vehicle. You get in confidently as you do every morning,
 as you did yesterday,
 and turn the ignition,
 there's a spark, you can hear it, but it doesn't start.
 It tries too, but it just sputters out.
Your out of gas.
 Theres no gas for the spark to ignite.
 Again your stuck just sitting there.
 Not only do you need a spark, but you need to be combustible!
 Theres a proverb that says
 "where there's no wood, there the fire goeth out".
 Its not enough just to be on fire for God,
  you need to have something in you
 for the Holy Spirit to ignite.
 Many times we put things into our spirit man,
that we would never dream of putting into our gas tanks.
We figuratively pull into the  garbage dumps of life
and say "fill 'er up".
Then we wonder why
we arent performing at optimal levels.
We wonder why
 we're so often left stranded.
 If we want to go places in God,
 and we want to get there faster than we are now, 
we need to fill up on high octane spiritual stuff.
 So when the Spirit sets off a spark,
we'll ignite
 and be well on the road
 to where we ultimately want to be.

Spitting In The Face Of Love

Spitting in the Face of Love
By: David Munn

God is love.
Jesus is God.
God loves us.
He told us so.
He put it in writing.
He doesn’t care who you are, where you’ve been, where you were born, how much money you make, or what you can do for Him.
He doesn’t care. None of that matters to Him. He loves you. Just as you are.
In his book, “Just Like Jesus”, Max Lucado wrote, “He loves you just as you are, but too much to let you stay that way.”
It’s true. No matter your station in life, Jesus is there for you.
All He wants, is to love you and make your life better.
All He requires is for you to love Him back.
Is that too much to ask?
He’ll know how much you love Him by how you respond to Him.
Will you submit yourself to Him, His will?
Will you live for Him?
Would you die for Him?
Would you do whatever it took to show Him how much you love Him?
He did all those things and more, for us.
And what did we do?
We rejected Him. We mocked Him. We spit in His face.
Yet looking through the spit and the tears, He sees us not as who we are now, and what we are doing now.
Instead He sees who we can become if we would just accept His love and love Him in return.
But even if we don’t, even if we never return the love He has already shown to us, even if we spit in His face, that doesn’t change who He is or how much He loves you.
You know He loves you. He’s made that perfectly clear.
The response is up to you. Will you show Him you love Him, or will you…………?

I actually posted this as a response to a holiness blog, and thought it was a good enough little read/word to pass it on as its own.

God means business about this seperation thing.
In the OT He didn't even want two different kind of fabrics in your clothing.
what fellowship hath light with darkness?
be not unequally yoked?
what part does Christ have with belial ?
if we aren't going to be "on fire" for God, He'd rather have us stone cold dead in sin, than a little of this and a little of that.
i wish that you were either hot or cold, because if your lukewarm, I'll spew you out of my mouth. lukewarmness actually makes God sick.
I heard a preacher say,"God's thermometer only reads 2 temperatures. Hot or Cold."
Come out from among them and be ye seperate.
i wish we could all look in God's mirror of truth and say "I'm hot!"
Can you?
