Holy Spirit Fire

S: “I’m baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a kingdom life. The real action comes next: The main character in this drama—compared to him I’m a mere stagehand—will ignite the kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house—make a clean sweep of your lives. He’ll place everything true in its proper place before God; everything false he’ll put out with the trash to be burned.” Matthew 3:11-12 (MSG)

O: The main character in this drama is not me. It’s You. It’s Your story – where You take the stage and You receive the glory. Holy Spirit fire! “A fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out.”

A: No longer do I have to keep trying to clean up my act on my own. All I really need is to surrender more to the work You want to do in my heart, to allow Your fire to consume me – to burn off the things that prevent the world from seeing more of You in me.

P: Baptize me in Your Spirit, God! Change me from the inside out! Don’t let anything remain in me that prevents more of You from shining through.
