The topic for tomorrow – Day 10 – Mon. Nov. 24 of the 2014 30 (40) Days of Blogging Challenge is
STARTING A FIRE
This is the most basic survival skill there is.
And if you’re wondering what, if anything, this has to do with pastoral blogging, here are a few reminders:
Our Lord Jesus Christ
“I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled! – Luke 12:49
John the Baptist
I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. – Matthew 3:11
A river of fire was flowing And coming out from before Him; Thousands upon thousands were attending Him, And myriads upon myriads were standing before Him; The court sat, And the books were opened. – Daniel 7:10
Mother Maria of Paris
It is clear to me now: either Christianity is fire or there is no such thing.
