You know what makes a firefighter so important and unique is that when the fire is at the hottest and everyone is trying to find an escape route, they go in to try to put the fire out. If I ever decide to own afire outfit that will be my payoff line “WHEN OTHERS GO OUT WE GO IN”.
This should be the pay off line for every Christian. We should all be fire fighters. Life is not a bed of roses, so definitely at one point of our there will be fire and these are at the points we are called to duty. But nowadays, the sad reality is that there are very few firefighters. Everyone is around when things are going on nice and smooth, but when things start getting hot, we stylishly leave and let the person face his fire himself and this should not be so.
Jesus Christ is our example; he was there with so many people when others left. This is a wake call for all of us. This is one of the duties God has given us to do on this earth. He wants us as individuals to be fire fighters; he wants us to step in when others are stepping out.
What people don’t know about firefighting is that you don’t only make the person happy; you also make yourself happy because you get to see the reward of your duty. This is a wake up call for all of us; let’s start performing our God given duties and start putting off the fire in people’s life.
