FERVENT IN SPIRIT PART 1
(FUELING THE FIRE OF YOUR PRAYER LIFE)
Olawale Ojewumi

In the recent years, weariness, lukewarmness and lack of passion for the things of God are constant struggles for many Christian. Many actually had a desire to please God but constantly finding it difficult. Hence, the real question is, “What can we do to solve all this problems? Apostle Paul gave us the answer,

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;”
(Romans 12: 11)

No one can be effective in the service of God without been fervent in the spirit.

A Christian that lack daily touch with God will find it difficult to serve God as he/she ought to. So, I am trusting God to use this teaching to put fire into your spirit and also use it restore spiritual fervency to a life that is out of touch with God.

The word fervent means to boil up or to be aglow. it is the figurative language of a fire. The fire does not kill fire or absorb heat but gives off heat. Thus we are to be fervent in spirit. But in order to be fervent in spirit, we must be alive, and that means you need a fire in you. What that means is that you need the Holy Spirit working in you beyond the level of speaking in tongues. You need the work of the Holy Spirit in your heart and life. It is the Spirit that lights the fire to do the will of God with ease.
The word translated “fervent in spirit” means to boil with heat, be hot. It is used of boiling anger, love, and zeal for what is good or bad. As used in our text, it means to have a burning zeal to do the will of God.

We saw the expression of this kind of zeal in our master during His earthily ministry. In speaking of Him, John said,

Then His disciples remembered that it was written, ‘Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.'” John.2:17

Likewise Apollos,

Now a certain Jew named Apollos … came to Ephesus … and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord … ” Acts 18:24-25

 

Both Jesus and Apollos were successful in accomplishing much for God because they were fervent in spirit. To overcome your spiritual struggles, you need to become fervent in the spirit. Look at that passage again, Apollos was able to “Speak and teach the things of the Lord accurately” because he was fervent in the spirit.

WHY DO WE NEED TO BE FERVENT IN SPIRIT?

1. TO OVERCOME SPIRITUAL LUKEWARMNESS
The church at Laodicea was chastised because of their lukewarmness,

14 ¶ And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; {of the Laodiceans: or, in Laodicea}15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Rev. 3:14-16

The major cure for spiritual lukewarmness is to become FERVENT IN SPIRIT

2. Being fervent in the spirit will enables you to do the will of God from your heart.
Ephesians 6:6 counsels us to be “doing the will of God from the heart.”
This can only be possible if there is fire in your spirit
