We should fear both of them; namely getting burnt by temptations and getting destroyed by the water of corruption. See fire will not burn you and water will not destroy you; You pass through fire to water then pass through water as well. That is why in the sacramental rites fire is used first and then you come over to baptism; cross over from the fire to the water and from the water to renewal.
