Scripture tells us that Jesus only did what His Father told Him to do. We are really no different. It’s absolutely essential for us to know what the Father has in mind for us. Because, you see, there is a vast difference between being a slave and a son. A slave never knows the plans of his master, only the tasks he’s expected to do. He has no future, and no inheritance. However, a son will one day inherit everything his father owns, so when he is commissioned to do something for his father, he joyfully does it because he knows it will benefit the kingdom that also belongs to him. Ownership brings with it a deep and abiding sense of fulfillment and purpose.

George MacDonald

Instead of so knowing Christ that they have Him in them saving them, they lie wasting themselves in soul-sickening self-examination as to whether they are believers, whether they are really trusting in the Atonement, whether they are truly sorry for their sins – – the way to madness of the brain and despair of the heart…Instead of asking yourself whether you believe or not, ask yourself whether you have, this day, done one thing because He said, Do it! Or once abstained because He said, Do not do it! It is simply absurd to say you believe, or even want to believe, in Him, if you do not do anything He tells you.

When someone is burning for God, we can…
𝗔. Get jealous and tell them they are in their honeymoon period and need to grow in wisdom.
𝗕. Find areas of their life they are not doing perfectly in and tear them down in your mind to make yourself feel better.
𝗖. Act like an orphan by talking down about them to others.
𝗗. Let their fire make you hungry for more. Remember God’s nature, that He is no respecter of persons. If you come to Him, He will give you the same passion and intimacy He is giving them!
