I think about that one small flame, separate and unique. That flame will soon be part of a growing fire. Once again I look at the fiery flames. I see sparks flying in all directions.

What Does it Mean to Fan into Flame the Gift of God?
Soon, there is one flame inside another flame. The flames are part of the bigger fire. Each of us is an individual flame of this enormous fire. It is like fire within fire.
Each of us has a flame that is small and unique but can create something new and transform into new possibilities. We must put some skin in the game, some sweat equity into the goal. The light is already aglow. We need to be such persons, those who love the Lord, offer ourselves to God, and are willing to let God work in us and burn in us so that we may serve Him with the fire that comes from God.
If we allow the Lord to burn in us and energize us for His service, we will experience the divine fire and our work was to build the church with gold, silver, and precious stones. When we experience the divine fire burning in us and thus we serve God, our work will be full of the element of God gold , with the power of the cross silver , and expressing God precious stones. Oh Lord Jesus! We really need to be before the Lord concerning our service to God so that it would be Him who burns in us and motivates us for the work, and not us who initiate things or do things for Him, burning with our own fire.

We need to live and work for God in the light of His judgement seat, not being presumptuous but letting His fire burn in us to motivate and energize us for our service to God. It is not enough to serve God with fire: the fire has to be from the right source, it has to be from the altar, the fire coming from God. Our God is a consuming fire, and He wants us to serve Him with Himself as the divine fire; we should always have the light of the judgement seat before ourselves, fear God as the fire burning, and allow Him to burn in us and energize us for His work.
Strange fire is any fire other than that which burns on the altar; it is fire of the self, fire that issues from the soulish life, the fleshly life, and the natural life see Matt. Many serve God with fire, but the fire they serve God with is the fire from the self, their soulish life, and their flesh; our soul life can be quite energetic. We should not think that if someone is absolute for the Lord and knows the word of God he is qualified to serve for God; we should not be confident in ourselves and think that since we have some zeal, we should just do something for God.
We need to surrender our skill, our preference, and our soul life, and what remains will be the genuine fire and motivation from the Lord. Anything that is not from the altar of the cross of self-denial is strange fire. Strange fire is fire of the self; it is fire that issues from the soulish life, the fleshly life, and the natural life.
Strange fire means that the self-life interferes with the works of God. Collected Works of Watchman Nee, vol.
Nadab and Abihu were judged not because they did something evil, wrong, or not for God, but because they acted according to the natural life and did something for God in a natural way Lev. This is very sobering. Free download.
Mindset Monday: Fan into Flame the Gift of God 2 Timothy 1:6
Whether you come from a godly heritage or not, we are all building on a foundation that saints of old have laid, the foundation of the gospel message proclaimed, of the power of grace lived out day after day, in the midst of trial, in the midst of hardship. We all stand on the shoulders of giants of the faith who came before us. I remember your tears when we parted. It broke my heart. If you have one or two good, godly friends in this life, you are blessed.
The false teachers had gained ground. Timothy was no doubt discouraged. Timothy, you are the real deal.

Jesus has given you a sincere faith that is strong and sure. Paul is praising God and reminding Timothy that he is not the only one in his family who is following Jesus. He may feel alone in Ephesus, but he is not. Timothy carries with him a godly heritage of his own.

Seeds of the gospel planted early. God was faithful to use others to draw you to Him. It seems that Timothy has become weary in his calling, weary in serving the church in Ephesus, weary of fighting and debating with the false teachers. And so, the passion and the energy and the joy Timothy once found in his teaching gift and his call to serve the church seems to be diminishing.
God is speaking to us, too.
