There’s a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place, and we know that it’s the Spirit of the Lord! It’s Pentecost Sunday! Fire is dangerous; so, we work hard at controlling it. We hang detectors to alert us to its presence. We have extinguishers to help us fight it. Fire is destructive, but we also know we need it for light and warmth. The Bible tells us in Acts 2:3,4 that at Pentecost “They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Are you fighting the fire inside you, trying to keep it under control? Imagine how your world might change if you let the Spirit truly take over. Yes, some things would be destroyed and other things would be transformed. All of it would lead to God’s glory. Isn’t that what matters, though? Join us this week as we “Let It Burn.”
