Ever grab matches that have been sitting in your drawer for ten years and try to light one and the end crumbles off? Is that how your faith is?

Maybe you've been in church your whole life. You prayed a prayer when you were a kid, and now it's just old to you. "Yeah, yeah, yeah. I heard this sermon before. I heard this Scripture before."

If we're not careful, we can become arrogant and cocky, thinking we've heard everything there is to hear about Jesus. We think we know all there is to know.

How could it be? We know one billionth of one speck of what there is to know about God and we think we've heard it all before.

Has your faith grown kind of "old"? Has your Christianity grown "old"? Not mature, just "old," like "old hat" to you?

If that is you, just say this from your heart to God: "God, I'm sorry. I've been in touch with religion and tradition, but I haven't connected with You. My faith is old. I know You're not boring or dry. God, break the hardness of my oldness and my callousness, because I want to be on fire."
