"We are not going to move this world by criticism of it nor conformity to it, but by the combustion within it of lives ignited by the Spirit of God." ~ Vance Havner

..luke-warm like stale milk left out on the countertop?..or red hot like a burning bush in the wilderness of Mount Sinai (Acts 7:30)?
God wants each of us to be in the later category..for Him. Talk to Him about it. Ask Him.. "Who makes His angels spirits, His ministers a flame of fire." Ps. 104:4
This is such an easy fix.. such a simple thing for God to deal with. Perhaps there needs to be some confession and forsaking of personal sins, honesty about how you feel, a constant avoiding of those places where you have fallen in the past, yes, a permanent turning away from all of vices of the flesh or pet sins.. or any kind for that matter? Ask the Lord to give you a love for righteousness and people.. and even a hatred for sin that destroys people.
If so, turn to Jesus quickly today. Tell on yourself. Be candid, asking for His forgiveness. He ain't there to slap you around like a boss in the Mafia. He understands you. The One with eyes like a burning fire (see Rev. 1:14) can indeed meet all your needs, heal, comfort and restore you, and set you on fire for God and His world-changing purpose today.
Perhaps you need to be born again spiritually?
