The conclusion of this series involves a commission. How "great" that commission will be remains to be seen. Yet the greatness of this commission will be determined by our understanding of the mission that God has laid before us. By looking at the personal call of Isaiah and the communal call given to the "Twelve", we will be encouraged to go forth as those ignited by the fire of God!
Key Passage(s): Isaiah 6; Matthew 28:16-20

It isn't a foreign encouragement for followers of God to allow their lives to be surrounded fully and totally by God. In allowing God to consume us on the inside, we see the organic movement of this change on the outside of us. God understands that he is competing for your attention. Does he have your attention?
Key Passages: Deuteronomy 4:15-24; Hebrews 12:14-29

As Disciples of Christ, we understand the metaphor of fire to represent life, light, activity, influence and faithfulness. Thus it is our constant desire for God to keep the fire burning within us. Constant attention must be given to our spiritual lives including attention given to our relationships, our habits and our outlook on life.
Key Passage(s): Leviticus 6:8-13; 2 Corinthians 4:7-16

The Psalmist writes, "I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the House of the Lord'" What would happen if we stopped saying "we have to go to church" and started saying "we get to go to church"? Our enthusiasm in approaching God in worship can be an igniter for our collective souls. Thus our lives, no matter what the circumstance might be, would be lived full of joy, excitement and the anticipation of God?s lingering presence.
Key Passage: Psalm 122
