Take Heed of Strange Fire

The temple had a fire burning on the altar; take heed of strange fire. But keep the fire of zeal and devotion flaming upon the altar of your heart; do temple work and offer up the sacrifice of a broken heart. When the heart is a consecrated place, a holy of holies, then God will walk there. Many a man’s heart is a pest-house, a bedlam, being polluted with sin. This is to put swine into God’s temple! This is to let the devil come into God’s temple! David’s heart was a dedicated temple (Psalm 119:38). ~ Sermon, The Spiritual Watch
