God is the fire in us: He is the energy, the fuel burning in us. The basis of our service is not spiritual training or learning, zeal, ability, and knowledge, neither is it the need for service; the unique basis of our service has to be the fire from the altar.
If we carry out the service based on anything else besides the fire from the altar, we may incur judgement upon our service. The Lord may allow us to serve Him in this age not having the proper basis, but
He will not let us go in the next age; things may go well today but the fire will come and will test everything.
We need to be before the Lord concerning our service so that He may shine on us thoroughly; our service has to have God as the source, with the heavenly vision, in the Body, according to the divine revelation, in our spirit in the gospel, with the proper humanity, and the basis of our service has to be the fire from the altar. ~ Anonymous godman.com
