How To Get On Fire For God
The Fire of God
- What is the fire of God?
There are innumerable facets in God. The fire of God is just another facet of God. It is the fiery side of God. In Hebrews 12:29 we are told that our God is a consuming fire. This fire is beneficial to the children of God but destructive to the enemies of God. Fire goes before Him and consumes His foes on all sides (Psalm 97:3).
How To Receive The Fire of God
Luke 3:16 KJVJohn answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.
- How can I receive fire of God?
If our Father is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29), we also as His sons and daughters ought to be carriers of His fire. He makes His ministers flames of fire (Hebrews 1:7b). It is our birthright to be on fire for God and it is error if we are not. The question we should ask ourselves is, are we willing to carry the fire?

- Being on fire for God helps our spiritual gifts operate at their very best.
- Temptations become easy to overcome when we are on fire for God.
- The fire of God births in us hunger for the pursuit of spiritual things. People desire sin and its fleeting pleasures when they are not on fire for God. It is easier to live a holy life when we are on fire for God.
- We need the fire of God in order to set others on fire for God as well. The fire of God is contagious. When we carry fire, it becomes impossible for others to not catch the fire when they cross paths with us.
