I just came across an interesting quote:
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire: In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep- burning and unquenchable.”
– Bruce Lee (1940-1973) Chinese-American Actor, Director, Martial Artist
I find it interesting because that reminds me of the unquenchable fire Jesus spoke about – His all-consuming fire of love for us – His eyes are like flames of fires that burn with passion and compassion.
“it is time for us to meet THE FIRE so that we can become ministers of fire, full of a compassionate love that will melt our enemies with His good works which we will pour on their heads.”
– Gary Amirault (From his article “Bible Threatening Explained: Unquenchable Fire“)
