“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





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, and fill me with Your fire.

Burn away my iniquity

and stir up in me

a burning flame of love for You,

and of hope and joy in You.

Come, Lord Jesus, come!
