It Only Takes a Spark
Updated: Apr 27, 2022
When someone sees you, is there any doubt or denying that you have the burning fire of Jesus in your heart? The apostle Paul reminds Timothy to 'stir up' the gift of God (rekindle the embers, fan the flame); keep the inner fire burning for God in 2Timothy 1:6 - "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands." Don’t settle in your salvation, but keep the fire going for all that God wants to do through your life. You are the Light on the darkest day! Matthew 5:16 - “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
It only takes a spark to start a whole blaze; it only takes a little faith. Psalms 107:9 - “For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.”
Start a fire in my soul; fan the flame and make it grow so there’s no doubt or denying. Let it burn so brightly that everyone around can see that it’s You, Lord, that we need. Start a fire in me!
Jesus, we have the Hope, we bear Your name, we carry the news that You have come to save. 2Corinthians 4:6 - “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
Jesus is all we need! Start a fire!
Point to ponder: “There is a day coming, when our souls will be inquired after. Thou hadst a soul committed to thee; how was it employed? in the service of sin, or in the service of Christ?” ~ Matthew Henry
