Starting a Spiritual Fire…

1.   Commit to the will of God: ______________________.

“When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, ‘Is it you, you troubler of Israel?’ And he answered, ‘I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father's house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord and followed the Baals.’” I Kings 18:17-18 (ESV)

“As He passed alongside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, Simon’s brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. ‘Follow Me,’ Jesus told them, ‘and I will make you fish for people.’  Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” Mark 1:16-18 (CSB)

2.   Avoid Indifference: __________________________.

“No one can serve two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Matthew 6:24 (CSB)

“’Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?’ He said to him, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command.’” Matthew 22:36-38 (CSB)

3.   Be _________________ and _____________________.

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect. Elijah was a human being as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the land. Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land produced its fruit.” James 5:16-18 (CSB)
