Keep your lamps burning…
Then you will be ready to open the door and let him in
the moment he arrives and knocks.” (Luke 12:35-36)
Many people – including myself in the past – pursue God only when they’re in a crisis. They seek Him because they’re needy or in pain. But Jesus says to burn hot for Him – not because we’re running from something, but because we’re running to him!
One way or another, we’re all running in this life. Would you rather run from pain? Or run to Jesus?
