I CAME TO SEND FIRE ON THE EARTH
In sending his Son on earth, God was to be glorified and sinners were to be saved. Jesus was fully aware that his mission will involve suffering, and ultimately death. Yet He came with a willing and ready mind. In fact, during his entire ministry, his mind was constantly set on finishing the work which He came into the world to accomplish. This desire to do his Father’s will is so passionately expressed in Luke 12:49-50. Let’s read this passage. Luke 12:49-50.
Luke 12:49. I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!
