New Life Daily Devotion - October 25, 2011

 

Enthusiasm for Christ
So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready
to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives.
Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil,
doing just what you feel like doing. You didn’t know
any better then; you do now. As obedient children,
let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life,
a life energetic and blazing with holiness.
1 Peter 1:13-15 MSG

When we fan the flames of enthusiasm for Christ, our faith serves as a beacon to others. John Wesley advised, “Catch on fire with enthusiasm and people will come for miles to watch you burn.” His words still ring true.

Our world desperately needs faithful believers who share the Good News of Jesus with joyful exuberance. Be such a believer. The world desperately needs your enthusiasm—now!

Enthusiasm, like the flu, is contagious—we get it from one another. - Barbara Johnson, 100 Days of Prayer

We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about. - Charles Kingsley

One of the great needs in the church today is for every Christian to become enthusiastic about his faith in Jesus Christ. - Billy Graham

Diligence applies to whatever you do in your Christian life. Anything done in the Lord’s service is worth doing with enthusiasm and care. - John MacArthur

Today’s Prayer
Dear Lord, let me be an enthusiastic participant in life. And let my enthusiasm bring honor and glory to You. Amen
