Desperate, Hungry and Longing

Here are three significant words for you: “desperate,” “hungry” and “longing.” Do they describe your approach to Jesus? Are you desperate for a touch from Him? Are you hungry for more of Him? Do you long to be so close to Him that it’s as if you are wearing Him like a wonderful, comforting coat? If your desperation, hunger and longing for Him seems to have grown cold… if you have made a habit of controlling these feelings, it’s time to let go and set them on fire! It’s time to burn hotter for Jesus! Hebrews 12:28-29 (NKJV) says, “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. {29} For our God is a consuming fire.”

Fire up your commitment to Christ. Incinerate those old habits of complacency. Let yourself be free from their containment. Release control of your emotions to the Holy Spirit. Let Him make your heart combustible for Jesus once more. Let’s put it in simple terms: Burn for Jesus! I’ll say it again. Burn for Jesus! Let, “I’m on fire and the devil is a liar” become your battle cry. Then, God will light up your life so you can do the same for others. I’m Dr. Bob. What would it take to make you explode with fiery love for and faith in Christ? Become “desperate,” “hungry” and “longing” for Jesus one more time. Set fire to your heart and let it happen.
