If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, you know the challenge.

You know that our human nature wants the flame of faith to burn out for lack of fuel, whether by not reading the Bible or by not praying or by not joining other believers in worship and study.

The danger of extinguished faith is SO great, however, that we simply must avoid it at all costs.

That’s why a passage in today’s devotional reading is so important. “Remember, the fire must be kept burning on the altar at all times. It must never go out.” (Leviticus 6:13)

The context of this verse involves the Old Testament temple sacrifices that were to be done in accordance with the worship rituals given Moses by God.

There is great detail in the instructions for how the sacrificial animals were to be prepared and consumed by the priests serving at the temple.

What struck me, though, is that the same requirement was in place for every type of animal sacrificed on the altar.

The fire was to never go out. The altar was ALWAYS to be ready for sacrifice. Because of the Israelites’ sinful nature, there would always be the need for God’s atonement of man’s sin.

Listen, please keep the fire of your faith burning.

Keep loving. Keep listening. Keep learning.

Keep looking into your heart to notice when sin has occurred and the need for forgiveness requires you to lay your offense on the altar of your trust in Christ as Savior.

God’s light of love never burns out for us. Let’s make sure that our light of faith never burns out for Him.

As always, I love you
