Things Your Momma Should Have Taught You
3. Stay lit.
Years ago, while housesitting for some friends, I saw a little blue flame in their gas fireplace. I didn’t know what it was, so I freaked out. I thought my friends had gone on vacation and left their fireplace on. I spent a comical hour huffing and puffing and blowing out the pilot flame. Later, when I called them, they told me that little flame is supposed to stay lit.
In the same way, our passion for Jesus isn’t always a roaring fire. But it is possible for us to stay “lit” so that the Spirit can flip the switch to raging hot through worship and spiritual disciplines (Eph. 5:19). As we give voice to our passion, the Spirit will move on us and fill us to overflowing.
4. Prayer is the key
Prayer is an important bond between Christians and their Heavenly Father. This explains why it is important for us to pray every time, on a daily basis. No wonder 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
We need to tell God about everything from our issues to our blessings. Doing this helps us maintain a Godly lifestyle.
