With a campfire, you have to consistently add wood and stoke the fire to keep it burning.
I think the same principle can be applied to a lot of different aspects of our life.
Ministry operates by the “campfire principle.”
If we are continuously burning and dedicating ourselves to ministry for others,
while failing to stoke our own fire, we’ll burn out.
If we are continuously pouring into others without allowing God to pour into us,
we’ll eventually dry up.
There’s no greater necessity for anyone in ministry than to spend personal time with the Father.
We can never replace preparation for teaching or ministry for our own relationship with God.
If we do, we’ll eventually have nothing left.
Are you actively using the campfire principle?
Are you actively seeking a word from the Father?
Are your receiving the necessary fuel for your fire?
