Welcome to "Fan the Flame" Friday.

This is a weekly post that will be "short and sweet" (kinda like me...)

Just a word and a phrase, a sentence or a question...just a little something to "fan the flame" of your creativity!

Today's word: revolt

What does the word revolt mean to you?

How was the birth of Jesus a revolt against the world's status quo?

How was it a revolt against the devil?

It what ways has the Savior, the Prince of Peace, caused a revolution in your heart?

Let me know what you think!!

"This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you…For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:6-7)

  1. What a great follow up Fan the Flame to the previous post!

    I like the word "revolt" better than "rebellion". I think it speaks of a boldness prompted by a bubbling that simply refuses to be squelched. It just spills up and over.

    I do think it was and is a revolt against the Enemy in every form. It is/was a revolt against Satan himself and every lie that he has told and will tell.

    That God doesn't love us enough to save us.
    That God works in worldly ways.
    That what we expect should be just as we expect it. (Just to name a few)

    And yes, it was/is a revolt against the status quo. Personally, I think the SQ is one of Satan's most masterful creations.

  2. great thought as always Sharon. Have a great rest of the day.

  3. Very thought provoking...revolt...never thought of it like that but it works doesn't it. Revolt to me means standing up against something that is unfair...demanding change. Revolting against Satan's lies is one I like! God bless.

  4. Revolt - first word that comes to mind is revolution and Jesus sure caused a revolution when he came! To those who decided to "revolt" along with him, to take up our crosses and follow him, life has never been the same, and definitely all for the best!


  5. Oh Sharon I am so tired tonight, but wanted to say hello - I am running late as usual!

    Great post today. sandie

  6. Seems like almost everyone is revolting against someone or some thing these days. Certainly the greatest revolution came to the world in the form of a baby 2000 years ago. That revolution is still going on today. Thank you for this thoughtful post.

  7. What a revolt the Christ Child brought. Even the religious leaders wanted to ignore Him but they couldn't. He preached a loving God, they preached strict adherence to rules. Love always wins and one day every knee will bow in honor of the One who came and brought light to us.

    Merry Christmas, Sharon.


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)
