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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I have come to bring fire to the earth,

and how I wish it were blazing already!”

– Luke 12:49

REFLECTION…

.

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.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

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!
