“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.”
“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.”
“And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.”
The church on fire will be an unstoppable church Acts 2:1-6. When the fire fell on the church at Pentecost, nothing could stop her again. God the owner of the church is fire, so the church is expected to be on fire Heb. 12:29. Jesus, the head of the church is fire, so the church is ought to be fire Rev. 1:12-16. The Holy Spirit, the helper of the church is fire, the church is to be on fire Acts 2:1-6.
Why Does the Church Seem to Lack Fire?
The much of fire that will be on a local assembly of God’s people will largely be determined by the fire that the head pastor permits Hos. 4:9. This is determined by the level of fire on Himself as a priest.
In every spiritual setting, the leaders of the people will define what becomes of the house Isa. 9:16. Some leaders are fire boosters, while some are fire quenchers. Which one are you?
A congregation that will be on fire must be one with the average member on fire for God Acts 2:3-4. Often, what we have in our churches are sincere people who have not been taught on the need for fire, and how to ignite God’s fire on their lives. So you have a people who have no crave for fire, who explain sin, have no lifestyle of prayer, fasting nor the word, but full of activities and love position.
In conclusion, we must believe God to help us build with Him a church on fire from now. This will start with us coming on fire for God, and accepting responsibility to be an example in being on fire always for God.
Father in the name of Jesus, I accept the responsibility to be on fire for God, release the grace for a fire-filled life on me now 1Cor. 15:10.
