Does your heart burn for God? Do you long to know him better, love him more fully, follow him more faithfully, and trust him more completely? Do you deeply desire to live a God-centered life in which God is glorified and reflected in your daily thinking, speaking, and doing? If so, you already belong to The Fellowship of the Burning Heart.
Of course, no one, save the Lord Jesus Christ, can say they fully desire any of those things, much less have arrived. The Apostle Paul himself didn’t presume he had arrived but knew he must continue to press toward the goal of such communion with God and conformity to the likeness of his Son, Jesus Christ.
Yet even the desire to desire God in such a way is a good thing.
There are those who have gone before us who have hungered and thirsted for God and they have shared wisdom from their journey with those of us who would follow them down that path. That’s all this blog is… sharing bits and pieces from those in the Fellowship who’ve finished their pilgrimage to the Celestial City and now rest from their labor. What they have left behind for the rest of us is encouragement and wisdom to help us travel the same road.
A Caveat: No quote by any of the saints of the Fellowship is meant to promote works-righteousness or a second work of the Spirit that is available to only the “super Christians” among us. The Fellowship of the Burning Heart ought to be normal Christianity that has as its foundation, the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ, and is animated by the grace of God and the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. The Lord has revealed himself and his will through his Word, the holy Bible. Excerpts, prayers, etc., that are chosen to be part of this blog are grounded and consistent with that self-disclosure of God.
“To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religionist, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.” A.W. Tozer
