DARE WE CATCH FIRE? PDF Print

The mark of Christ must shine through all members of His Body.  We are His translators.  His life is congruent with that of the Father.  He speaks as the Father has bidden Him to speak; He acts to do the will of the Father.  Ego is not the name of the Son, but ego eimi, “I am that I am,” who by nature and being is God, who is love.

The Jewish leaders arrested and interrogated Peter and John for preaching the gospel, and when “they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they wondered; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13)  They had caught fire, Pentecostal fire, which was poured out to reach the world for Jesus.

So they translated Jesus to others, and did not preach themselves.  We are all called to be His translators, according to the gifts and roles we’ve been given and have taken up.  Is it His Voice coming through us or just our own clanging cymbal?  If we lose ourselves in the love of Christ, others may find Him in our translation.

Dare we catch fire?

Yours for Christ, Creed, and Culture,
