Sermon & Study Notes

Don't let anything stomp out your fire

Sunday, March 21, 2004 • Rev. Jose Gomez sr. • Personal Growth
We need to be constantlly stiring up the fire of God inside of us and and be unguard from anything that will extinguish it.
  • 2 Tim. 1:6-6

    - Stir up the gift of God that is in you. Paul is encouraging his son in the faith

    - Don't let anything or anyone discourage you.

    - It's our responsibility to keep that fire burning.

    #1. The enemy will trie to use people and situations to stomp off, put out or steal your fire, Thats his job.
    John 10:10 says; "The thief does not come exept to steal, to kill and to destroy. I have come so that you may have life and have it more abundantly."

    A. Things that will extinguish your fire.
    1. Fleshly, negative christians will extinguish your fire.
    * Talking to these people is like crossing a battery. They give you a cross circuit.
    * All they see is the negative side of things.
    * They see all the obstacles. (The twelve spies, ten were fleshlly and tried to put out the fire of the other two).
    * If you hang out with negative people your flame will always be week.
      1 Timothy 4:7 says; "Reject profane and old wives fables, and exercise yourself toward Godliness."
      2 Tim. 2:16, "Shy away from profane and idle talk, for they will increase to more ungodliness"

    "DON'T LET ANYONE STOMP OUT YOUR FIRE !!!"


    #2. The challenges of life will put out your fire.
    Jesus said; "In the world you will have tribulations(trials, distress, frustration) but be of good cheer(take courage, be confident) for I have overcome the world".
    * The amplified version says; "I have taken away from the world the power to harm you."

    #3) Idleness, procrastination and lazyness will put off your fire.
    * Idleness is not doing anything
    * Procrastination is leaving it for tomorrow.
    * Lazyness is saying; "I'm to tired , I don't feel good right now, I don't have any time, etc.
    Prov. 18:9, "He who is idle or lazy in his work is a brother to him who is a great destroyer."
    1 Tim.5:13

    #4. Foolishness will stomp out your fire.
    * Foolish thinking( in the parable of the ten virgians, five were wise and the other five were foolish)
    * The foolish lost out because they counted on somebody else to do what they should have done for      themselves.

    "DON'T LET ANY OF THESE THINGS STOMP OUT YOUR FIRE!!"

    CONCLUSION:
    1. It's your duty to God to keep the fire burning, 2 Tim.4:2,5
    2. Your diligence and fire for God will help you in every area of your life, Prov.10:4, Prov. 13:4
