Fire

Fire.

It burns.  It overwhelms.  It consumes.

It takes over…

You might have heard someone say “I’m on fire for God,” and wondered what they meant.  I mean, most fires are meant to be put out before they do more damage, right?

But, on fire for God?  That’s a different story.

The prophet Jeremiah put it this way…

But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord
    or speak in his name,
his word burns in my heart like a fire.
    It’s like a fire in my bones!
I am worn out trying to hold it in!
    I can’t do it!”

Jeremiah was so consumed with God, he couldn’t help but speak His Name.

Or, to put it a different way, God’s Word so overwhelmed Jeremiah, that he had to spread it.  It was burning inside of him.

He was a man on fire… for God.
