Fire of Christ’s Love

loveLuke tells us the greatest desire of Christ’s heart – to start a fire. Fire which is God’s love in us. Christ burns with love for us and His desire is that we know this and experience first hand His love. The baptism with which He needed to be baptized was the cross, which was the place where He showed us how extreme His love is. We can help Christ set fire to the world by first letting His love penetrate our hearts. This fire needs to blaze and once it is blazing it can do nothing but spread. God is burning for us. His love doesn’t leave us inert, but urges us on. We won’t remain the same after having encountered Him, but changes us and gives us a new identity free from any other constraints to be be able to be totally available to His loving touch. Heart of Christ, inflame our hearts with love for You!
