The Physics of Fire

The Fire Triangle

The ‘Fire Triangle’ above displays the three ingredients that are necessary to start and maintain a fire. Remove any one of them and there is no fire. Mixing the amounts of any of the ingredients can cause the fire to burn hotter, faster, or poorly and smoldering. In the section entitled ‘Greenwood vs. Seasoned wood,’ we discussed the need for seasoned/dry woof for a fire to burn effectively. The same is true with other substances/fuels such as gasoline – it must be properly refined and without water content.

For the purposes of setting a heart ablaze the same ‘fire triangle’ applies, as depicted above. Remove or diminish any one of these ‘Three Persons’ and the fire in the heart will extinguish or smolder – either way, it will not be all consuming. Each has It’s proper place and all Three work together, are indispensable to each other, and are needed daily in a believers heart and life to set their heart ablaze.
