While reading some in the book of Job, I came across the Hebrew expression for ‘sparks’.
Eliphaz utters these famous lines (Job 5:7):
but man is born to trouble
as the sparks fly upward.
The literal wording for sparks in Hebrew is ‘sons of flame’.
I find the expression exciting in the light of the Spirit being poured out on believers at Pentecost (Acts 2), in the form of tongues of fire, i.e. flames.
And, isn’t it by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit alone that makes Christians sparkle?
