Pass on the torch

In sports games, like the recent Olympic games,there will be a significant event of passing the torch to mark the start of the event. Similarly, there is a torch that God passes on to us, to basically start a journey of our Christian life. One part is the sharing of the Gospel.

We, as the torch bearers, hold this torch that God has given to us, and He wants us to pass to the lost between us, and this torch is to be passed on to others, never ending. The fire contents are as follows:

1) Fire of God
Fire of God, i.e. Holy Spirit. The flame which you are carrying contains the Holy Spirit, when you preach the gospel and the Holy Spirit intercedes for you, and He is speaking through you. The Holy Spirit's conviction will come upon the lost, telling them that God is real.

'And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit'
Ephesians 1:13

2) Power of the word
The word is God, the words that guide you to live right as a Christian. It is the basic instructions before leaving earth (BIBLE). When you pass on the torch to them, you are telling them to copy you, just as you copy Christ's behavior.

'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.'
John 1:1

3) Light of the Gospel
The Gospel, i.e, good news, is a news that allows salvation to take place. The light of the gospel shines with power, so brightly that the people who hears this will exclaim that Jesus is Lord of all, because He is the one way to heaven.

'The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.'
Matthew 11:5

4) Light of your testimony
When you live right as a Christian, you are shining as a light for Christ. pass on your testimony to others so that all may follow His ways and pass on the right way of living to others.

'For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you.'
1 Corinthians 1:5-6

Let the race be never ending till the time where we all go back to His kingdom. Lay hold of every person, young or old, leading them to get saved.

It is like a queue of trolleies, where you are the leader and as you connect some trollies on, people will start to follow suite, for they know this is the queue to place trollleies.
