When You Set Yourself on Fire...

People Love to Come and See You Burn

This quote by John Wesley is of course, talking about the inner fire of passion, truth, beauty, goodness, glory, conviction, vision . . . there are many different words that can be used. The world is attracted to those people who have a fire burning within them.

Now, this fire may be a purifying, holy, glorious fire.
Or it may be a dangerous, destructive fire.
We are drawn to those who burn within and who can communicate that "burning" in words and actions. 

Hitler is one of the most recent unholy fires that burned and mesmerized a nation and traumatized a world. Not all fires are from heaven.

But others are!

Jesus said he came to "set the earth on fire" (Luke 12:49).
