Birthday Surprise

Birthday Surprise

Happy birthday! I walked into the room full of surprise. All of my friends were there in party hats. I saw a large cake in the center of the room. I walked towards it and someone cut me a piece.

Imagine with me for a moment that you are camping with all your gear. You have already set up your tent when you realize the sun is going down and you haven’t much time to get a fire started. You find some flint at the last second. You scratch it against a rock and a spark ignites.

God is your flint. He sparks your personal flame. He wants you to show your flame to everyone and spread it to others. There always needs to be at least one flame to light others. Jesus was that one. He spread his flame to his disciples and everyone he met. [more]
