Avoiding Fire

It is pitiful that some people only want enough of Jesus to keep them out of the lake of fire. It is maybe more pitiful that there are religious people who for centuries have been offering that level of a relationship with clear conscience.

I am hoping to gain enough of Jesus to always have a holy fire burning in me and consuming who I was before I died with Him on the cross.

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us hold on to grace. By it, we may serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.
