“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 12:49




Jesus said,

“I have come to bring fire to the earth,

and how I wish it were blazing already!”


– Luke 12:49(JB)






In the Bible,

fire is often used

to describe God’s burning love for men.


This divine love

finds its highest expression

in the Son of God becoming man

who, in turn, gives up His life out of love for us.


This is why Jesus so wants us to be ablaze

with a fire that acquires its strength in prayer;

a fire that is made evident

through apostolic zeal

and determination.


This same fire spreads throughout the earth

as we ourselves live in accordance to Christ’s teachings

and take Christ’s burning flame of love and hope and joy

to others.






Come Lord Jesus, set my heart on fire!
