Evangelistic Steam

It is very suggestive that the word "breath" literally means "steam," something gentle, yet most powerful, from a warm and glowing source. "Come, O breath, and breathe" (Eze_37:9). The Holy Ghost is the breath of God, the gentle, glowing all-powerful steam of the Almighty. A preacher filled with the Holy Ghost has always the steam up. It is easy driving when you have plenty of steam on, but oh, how stiff when this heavenly motor is absent! The way to keep the steam up is to have a heart set on fire of love to God, and to have it fed constantly with the coals of divine promises.
