How’s your heart?
God’s purpose in life’s stress, troubles, and tough times is plain, as Ron Moore explains in his first book, Ignite. He uses our unfulfilled dreams, unsatisfied longings, unknown futures, and unmet expectations to stoke a burning passion to follow Him with our whole hearts.
Using King David—whom God called “a man after [My] own heart” (1 Sam. 13:14, TNIV) but who had feet of clay—as the book’s guide, Ron leads readers step-by-step along a spiritual journey to a heart ignited by grace.
By matching today’s struggles with David’s tumultuous life, Ron paints a vivid picture of God meeting His children wherever they are and using their loneliness, brokenness, disappointment, and emptiness to fan the flames of faith in their hearts.
Ron, whose ministry of 20 years is devoted to seeing lives changed by the Word of God, teaches a timeless message in Ignite: Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity . . . a lesson people need to hear now as never before.
From Ignite, Chapter 1, “Igniting a Heart for God”
Heart for God—Feet of Clay
We need a guide for our journey together. We need someone who has met with God in real-life experience. I don’t know about you, but I am wearied by those people who only share their success stories. I want to learn from a person who followed hard after God but also stumbled along the way. I can think of no better mentor in this process than David, the Old Testament king of Israel. . . .
David’s heart beat with God’s, but his feet were made of clay. David knew what it felt like to walk alone. He fell into sexual sin and lived through the painful consequences.
David experienced times when his heart was filled with questions and didn’t hesitate to express them. . . .
We will discover how David’s heart burned for God and was not contained. The fire spread to ignite his loneliness, brokenness, disappointment, and emptiness. I believe that we will find that David’s story is our story.
