Stir it Up

Fan the flame and stir up the gift within you 2Timothy1:6… There is no such thing as a passive Christian.

Passivity relates to a lack of feeling, lack of desire, general apathy, Luke warmness and laziness. This is another tool the enemy uses in an attempt to defeat believers… Entering into a state of passivity as a believer means willingly flirting with the devil

“Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour, (1 Peter 5:8 ASV)”

When a believer is inactive in any particular area of his spiritual life, that area becomes immobilized, the more s/he does nothing about it, the less s/he  wants to do anything about it, kind of like going to the gym or working out.. The longer you stay away from working out the harder it becomes for you to go back and restart your workout routine.

If you have a passive mind and are not choosing your thinking according to the word of God, the devil will inject harmful thoughts into your mind.. “Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth”. (Colossians 3:2 ASV) this must actively be our state of mind

Many believers want a good life but they passively think positive thoughts and actively thinking negative thoughts… Your life is a reflection of your active/dominant thoughts. Be active with your following of Christ and doing his will… Remember The Lord’s Prayer “Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” it is through Active believers and followers that Gods Will will be done on earth.
