Flashpoint
And he said; “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:3

If the blaze in a fire reaches a flash point, every bit of combustible material in the room—wood, paper, carpet, and furniture—will explode into flame.  The fire doesn’t even have to touch anything in order to spread.  A confined blaze will heat the atmosphere until everything in the enclosed space ignites.  If it can burn at the flash point it will.

If we apply the same principle to our hearts, the result is equally explosive.  When God ignites the passion in your soul, and ideas spontaneously ignite, your life will be changed forever.  A flashpoint of the heart can set the world on fire.

Has a fire ever smoldered quietly within the confines of your heart? A flashpoint will occur when you’re compelled to change—or make a difference—no matter what the cost.

“Some people go through their whole life wondering if they ever made a difference. Marines don’t have that problem.” - Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)
