Our memory verse for today tells us straightaway that there is a link between the Holy Spirit and fire. In Exodus 3:2, The Spirit of God spoke to Moses as fire burning in a bush. This was no ordinary fire as the bush was not consumed. Hebrews 1:7 says:
“And of the angels saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.”
Hebrews 12:29 says our God is a consuming fire. This verse
is talking about the Holy Spirit. For you to fully understand this aspect of
the Holy Spirit, let us look at 1 Kings 18:38:
“Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.”
When Elijah prayed and fire fell from Heaven, it consumed
the offering, the wood, the stone, licked up the water and the dust round about
the altar. This is certainly no ordinary fire!

When you see a man who has fire, tread gently around him.
Ananias and Sapphira were careless with the fire and paid with their lives
(Acts 5:1-10). The fire also must not be grieved. When Jesus says that
blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven (Matthew 12:31), it is
because the Holy Spirit is fire and carelessness can be fatal. That is why I pity
people who fake speaking in tongues and joke with it. If only they knew who
they were toying with, they would never try that.
The fire of the Holy Spirit is not the exclusive right of a
limited number of people; you too can carry the fire of God if you are willing.
It was not only the Apostles that were at the upper room when the fire of the
Holy Ghost came, but it rested on every single one of them, including Mary the
Mother of Jesus and His brothers (Acts 1:13-14). The fire of the Holy Ghost can
come upon you too if only you would lead a life of intense prayers and
