the Week of Proper 19 / Ordinary 24
The Bent-Knee Time
2 Corinthians 5:14-19
When we feel the fires of the Father’s love burning, then we start. The music of his voice catches and thrills, and we answer back. His love draws out our answering love. We open the door. He comes in and kindles his fires on the hearthstone of our heart. Then we put fresh fuel on the fires daily: studying his Word, chewing the cud of it daily, obeying it habitually—this is the fresh fuel.
