It's shocking how little fire and passion we show in our public worship, and for most of
us even in our private devotion. We're quite suspicious of too much emotion in religion;
too afraid of being thought peculiar; too aware of how some people are overly emotional
and disorderly. We're so fearful of wildfire that we don't permit ourselves any fire at all.
Someone once observed that, "By the time the average Christian gets his temperature
up to normal, everybody thinks he has a FEVER!" That's us. But we don't see such
subdued emotion in the Bible. Have we not observed the passion of the psalms and
the pathos in Paul's letters? If we courted our wives as tepidly as we worship our God,
it's a wonder we ever got her to the altar. John Wesley advised: "Catch on fire and people will come for miles to watch you burn."
