Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, “May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? Acts 17:19 (NIV)
Christ can only come to those who want to know Him. The person who doesn´t want to know will not let Him in. Those who have no curiosity for knowing the Lord will not take the steps necessary to open their hearts to Him. This is why Christian witness is so important. We are not called to change people´s minds and convert them to our thinking. We are here to kindle the spark that the Lord sets in the hearts of those who will come to Him. We are workers in the field of God to fan the curiosity for meeting and having Christ in them into flames! We should burn hot enough ourselves for Jesus that others can warm their curiosity and their lives from what we have! Do we display a curiosity intense enough to move others to consider theirs?
It takes more than knowledge of the Bible to assist others to come to God. It takes more than eloquent speaking and convincing argument. It takes the same Spirit that we would offer unto others! It takes God in us to share God to others! How hot is our flame burning now? How much of Him do we have smoldering within? Is our curiosity for the Lord burning warm enough that the curiosity of others can ignite today?
We ask that the curiosity for knowing You burns hot enough within us that those around may be warmed in its glow. Help us! Fan the fire within! Let us burn for more of you we pray!
