The Holy Spirit is a fire inside of all of us who have accepted Jesus as our Savior. Sometimes we have a little flame; sometimes we are lucky enough to get a huge fire burning inside of us.
However, the world is constantly like a wind blowing against our flame.
With small flames, all it takes is a little wind to blow it out. However, the larger the flame, the more wind it can withstand.
Stoking the fire takes fuel, time with God in prayer, reading the Bible, going to church, fellowship with other believers, worship music - the more we immerse ourselves in our faith the larger our fire gets.
The larger our fires get the more we can withstand what the world wants to throw at us.
