People love fire.
Have you ever noticed how people come running when they hear a fire truck’s siren?
Fire is amazing.
When I go camping one of my favorite things to do is sit around the campfire and just stare into the fire.
"I have come to bring fire to the earth, and I wish that my task were already completed!
"I baptize with water those who turn from their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is far greater than I am – so much greater that I am not even worthy to be his slave. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.”
“For our God is a consuming fire.”
You can use your tongue to start a fire in your school, in your work, and in this city. Use the words of your mouth to start a fire that will burn bright and cause people to come and see what is burning at Kingdom Youth Church.
So also, the tongue is a small thing, but what enormous damage it can do. A tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.
And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is full of wickedness that can ruin your whole life. It can turn the entire course of your life into a blazing flame of destruction, for it is set on fire by hell itself.
