Fan into flame

June 8, 2014


Fire is a common metaphor in the New Testament, as well as in songs. We’re all familiar with the old children’s song “This little light of mine – I’m gonna let it shine”… but just how little is that light supposed to be? Do we need to be careful it doesn’t get blown out by the world around us? That’s what Timothy was worried about, in the harsh and challenging environment of Ephesus – but Paul challenged him to upgrade his thinking!
