For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:29 NKJV)


Thought For The Week: A consuming fire is one that completely or utterly destroys, so why would a loving God also be called a consuming fire? It is a challenging question, but we must understand that God is holy – so holy that the unrighteous cannot be in His presence. This consuming fire destroys anything unholy. Those with sin are unable to approach God. It is only through His son, Jesus Christ, that we find forgiveness and salvation. Through His mercy, we are able to stand reverently before Him.

Prayer: Dear God, You are a consuming fire. You are holy, O Lord,. We know sin is an offense to You. Forgive us of our sins, Father. Thank You for Your mercy and for sending Your son, Jesus Christ, so that we may approach You with reverence and awe. You are amazing and we are underserving of Your attention, but You are good to show us favor. May we always remember Your power and worship You with humility. In Jesus’ name, amen.
