Jesus described John as “the burning and shining lamp” JOHN 5:35. John was a man set on fire from heaven, a man who incubated his love for God through a steadfast commitment to solitude in the secret place and thus became a shining lamp for the entire nation to behold.
People are always attracted to fire. Do something dangerous. Get alone with God. His “consuming fire” will burn away all from your life, until all that’s left is love itself.
