KEEP THE FIRE BURNING
Leviticus 6:13 NKJV "A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out."
An altar is a place of sacrifice; it's a raised platform where men offered their gifts and offerings to the Lord. An altar is a place of worship; a place of thanksgiving; a place of connection; a place of atonement; a place of dedication.
God instructed that the fire on the altar was to burn continually. And for many years the fire was never put out. That must have required dedication; keeping the fire burning was a sacrifice itself: but it signifies a life of constant worship, prayer, sacrifice, giving, fellowship and love for the Lord.
Is there fire on your altar? When was the last time there was a fire on your altar? Is there something you do all the time to stay connected to the Lord? Do you pray without ceasing? Do you offer Him endless praise? Are you fervent in spirit? Are you always engaged in serving the Lord? Are you always in fellowship with Him? Do you always give to Him? Keep the fire burning always; never let it go out.
