Here are a few thoughts I had on my heart one day.  It's not really an article but just a few thoughts that appeared to be burning in my heart on this particular day. - Josh

Where this is smoke, there is fire!  - Unknown (At least I don't know who)

Num 3:4 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.

Exo 30:7-9 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it. And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the LORD throughout your generations.  Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.

Do you have such a desire for Christ that it stirs up grief when you don't see God getting the glory He deserves? We as Christians should have such a strong desire to see Christ glorified.

All for our glory

The church is very confused today.  We have the mindset that men are good and God is mean and bad.  This is not so, the opposite is true.  Men are sinners, God is just and good.  We have degraded the Gospel to nothing more than to make us a little better so we can go to heaven... or so we think.  Today many church people sweep sin under the rug and say "Oh maybe God will clean it up on Sunday."  We have no horror of sin!  A matter a fact sin is our entertainment.  Most enjoy watching what the Bible condemns as sin.
