1056th -- Heaven's Fire


We should always remember and keep in mind that our life has a great 
impact upon others whether we realize it or not. What we say and do to 
others has an affect on them and by knowing this truth we should always be 
conscious of how we are impacting their life. As ambassadors of Christ on 
this Earth we are in essence His hands and feet and as such we must lead 
others to Him by being an example of His love whenever we have the 
opportunity. By allowing our light to shine in the midst of a down and 
discouraged world we are letting others see the love of Christ manifested 
through our life. When we share an encouraging word, complement someone 
on a job well done, or simply pay attention to that one in need, we are 
making an impact on their life that will never be forgotten.
(2 Corinthians 5:19) (James 1:27) (Hebrews 13:1-3)

We may think that our life is insignificant and unable to bring about a 
lasting change in others, but I can assure you that what you say whether 
positive or negative will leave a lasting mark upon those whom you 
encounter. And that is why it is all the more important to always leave a 
situation better than it was before. Be encouraged to take the initiative 
to be a blessing at every opportunity. Do not let your chance of being a 
blessing to pass you by. Think on your legacy and see what you would like 
to be remembered for long after you are gone. See that your positive, 
reinforcing and encouraging words and actions can make a difference to 
many souls throughout your life and the ripple effect that can come from 
it will be impossible to slow down or ever be stopped. Think on how you 
might be a blessing to someone else and with your whole heart pursue every 
chance you get to bring about a positive change. You will be so proud 
when you do. (Galatians 6:9-10) (Matthew 10:8) (Hebrews 12:1-3)

I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to see how easy it 
is to impact someone else in a positive way. Let us have this same 
conviction to be a blessing, to be an encourager and to be uplifting 
towards those who are feeling down or discouraged.


When I was a little boy our church was always full of music. We didn’t 
have an organ, a band, or even a stereo. All that we had was one lady with 
a guitar, but when she sang I am sure that all of Heaven’s angels must 
have joined in. During the week she was the music teacher at our local 
grade school. Many of the children’s songs that still live on in my mind 
today where learned in her class. It was the songs that she sang during 
those Sunday services, however, that live on in my heart. I can still hear 
her sweet guitar and joyful voice leading us in the hymns we sang. Her 
music and her spirit were full of Heaven’s fire. They brightened you up, 
warmed you up, and lighted a fire in your own soul as well.

My hymn leader, music teacher, and friend moved away before I was old 
enough to truly appreciate all that she meant to me. I never got to really 
thank her for lighting a candle inside of me with her generous fire. I 
never got to let her know that she started a song in my heart that still 
goes on today. I just pray that where ever she is that she gets to read 
this and knows how grateful we all are to her for burning so bright.

The most important thing that my friend taught me was that Heaven’s fire 
doesn’t just burn in the hearts of certain people. It is available to us 
all when we choose it. You can be full of Heaven’s fire too. You can light 
yourself up with love, joy, optimism, enthusiasm, energy, vitality, and 
oneness with God. You can brighten up the souls, warm up the hearts, and 
light up the lives of those around you. You can be a flame of goodness in 
an often dark and cold world. You can take your flickering candle and turn 
it into a blazing torch for everyone to see. You can share your generous 
fire and light a candle inside of each person you meet as well. Don’t let 
yourself be a smoldering ember in this life. Live well, burn bright, and 
let Heaven see your fire.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

1 John 3:16-19 “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down 
His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But 
whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and 
shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of 
God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in 
tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the 
truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.”

Matthew 5:14-16 Jesus declares
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that 
is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it 
under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that 
are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see 
your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

1 Peter 3:8-11 “Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of 
another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil 
for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that 
ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that 
will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, 
and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; 
let him seek peace, and ensue it.”

Revelation 22:12-14 Jesus declares
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my 
reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am 
Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 
Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the 
tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
