“For our God is a consuming fire.”
This chapter is very effective in making sure we understand that He is God and that He desires sanctification. We also come to understand that He is a consuming fire, not a fire that destroys us but bring us to a higher and holy ground. Go back to Moses and the burning bush. A moment in time where we see a tree burning with a consuming fire yet the tree was not consumed by the fire.
Allow Jesus to be a fire within you, think of Him daily. Let His presence be so very real and acknowledge it at every moment. Now you can begin your journey with your King and friend. Be strong and courageous. This is the fire that we all need to have.
