Jeremiah 20:9 says:
Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him,
Nor speak anymore in His name.”
But His word was in my heart like a burning fire
Shut up in my bones;
I was weary of holding it back,
And I could not.
To give some context here, Jeremiah was getting ridiculed by everyone around him and it was getting so bad that he was thinking about not proclaiming God's word anymore. The thing was that his passion for sharing God's word was so strong that him trying to hold it in was like trying to hold fire inside himself. He couldn't stop proclaiming the word of God!
Whatever our passion may be, are we this passionate about what we are doing?
