I played football for 10 years and never had a life changing injury. The reason being is, I was always on the move. I knew it would be hard for an opposing player to hit a moving target.

Our Lord wants us to be zealous for Him. The word zealous means to be “HOT!” This is the message He gives to the church in Revelation. He says, “Be Zealous!” Be Hot! Get On Fire For The Lord!” The church had fallen into a state of being lukewarm like many Christians have and do!
