Are you in it for the long haul? Many of us start out with enthusiasm and dedication but lose steam a short way down the road. Anything from a committee assignment to building a solid marriage requires persistence and hard work. A good leader or encourager will be at our side reminding us to stir up the ashes and rekindle the flame of faithful commitment.
Plans for a house of God in Jerusalem were under way. (Ezra 1:1-3) How many would accept the challenge to become involved? "And every survivor, at whatever place he may live, let the men of that place support him with silver and gold, with goods and cattle, together with a freewill offering for the house of God which is in Jerusalem. Then the heads of fathers' households of Judah and Benjamin and the priests and the Levites arose, even everyone whose spirit God had stirred up to go up and rebuild the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem (Ezra 1:4-5 NAS)." Allow God to stir you up. His church needs you.
