11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
Just another verse I wanted to share with you. This verse reminds us of the need for fire.
Once you get Christ, you don’t just stay the same.
Jesus came, lived, died and rose so that we would receive not only salvation and forgiveness through Him, but the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
So once you get the Holy Spirit, check to see that you have fire. They are not mutually exclusive and must co-exist together.
Have you ever met a Christian who is just dead, lifeless, static? Fire means you have a passion for God, a desire to do His will and a zeal for the faith.
Don’t waste time – Check your fire.
