When a fire begins to die, the active flames die down, leaving smoldering embers. If more fuel is added to those embers, and oxygen is provided - the fire will come alight again. It has been rekindled. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, and encouraged him to 'stir up' the gift of God's Holy Spirit within him. Not to let it die, not to let it slowly smolder, but to rekindle it. To stir the flames to life again. The Day of Pentecost represents the Day when God began the fulfillment of the prophecies found in the book of Joel, and the pouring out of His spirit on mankind. As we leave these days - let us consider that fire dwelling in us and our care of it.
