"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

ARE YOU ON F.I.R.E. FOR JESUS?


If there's anything that catches people's attention and causes them to sit up and take notice of what you're saying or doing, it's ENTHUSIASM! The word enthusiasm is derived from two Greek words: "En", which means IN, and "theos", which means GOD. So enthusiasm literally means "in God", or "God in us"!--Thus the truly enthusiastic person is one who acts and speaks as if he were possessed by God!

God's Word tells us, "WHATEVER your hand finds to do, do it with ALL your MIGHT!"--Ecclesiastes 9:10. The Bible also tells us, "Never be lacking in ZEAL, but keep your spiritual FERVOUR, serving the Lord!"--Romans 12:11. The Lord expects His children to be WHOLE-HEARTED wildly willing workers who are filled with an impassioned desire to please and serve Him!--ENTHUSIASTICALLY!

In fact, Jesus said that half-hearted, lukewarm, indifferent Christians make Him literally SICK to His stomach! He says to them, "I know your deeds and works, that you are NEITHER COLD nor HOT. I WISH that you were EITHER one or the other, cold OR hot!--So then, because you are LUKEWARM, and neither hot nor cold, I will SPEW (vomit) you OUT of My mouth!...Be ZEALOUS, therefore, and repent!"--Revelation 3:15,16,19.

The Lord wants and needs on-fire, redhot, enthusiastic followers who love Him more than anything or anyone else on this Earth!--Disciples who are DETERMINED to follow Jesus all the way because they know they have found the TRUTH!
