A Fire in Your Eyes and a Pep in Your Step!

Stir into flame the gift of God that you have.

2 Timothy 1:6

The Apostle Paul is sending encouragement to Timothy from his prison cell reminding his brother in Christ of the fire of the Spirit dwelling within him. Not only does he urge Timothy to remember this gift but to set it ablaze once again. Truly Paul is a man of the Spirit mustering up the courage and strength from his prison cell to build up his “dear friend” to bring the light of Christ to the people of Ephesus.

Just like Timothy, we all have the “gift of God” dwelling within us. At our Baptism, a priest or deacon laid hands on you, poured water over you, and handed you or your parents a lighted candle. “Receive the light of Christ.” This light is entrusted to you to keep burning brightly. The fire of the Spirit came to live in your heart. As St. John Chrysostom has said, it lies within our power to kindle or extinguish this fire.

We are the light of the world!
