Sunday Reflection: Fire in the House

Photobucket

A Blessed Sunday Everyone! Today’s scripture is from Leviticus 6:9

“Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the law of the burnt offering: The burnt offering shall be on the hearth upon the altar all night until morning, and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning on it.

In ancient Israel, the priests were instructed to ensure that the fire from the altar of burnt offering where daily sacrifices of animals that such as lamb, bulls, goats, turtledoves or pigeons are being offered in order the fire from the altar to keep burning.  This ritual pleases God reason that He affirms it by His presence in a form of a pillar of fire by night and pillar of cloud by day, symbolizing the continual burning love and passion between God and man.  Thus should the fire of our holy affections, the exercise of our faith and love, of prayer and praise, be without ceasing.

Our Love for Jesus is the greatest fuel to keep our burning relationship with Him. So lets keep that fire burning in our hearts.
