Only God!

Only God Could Create…

Fire!

Fire!Only God could have created fire! I took this picture in my fireplace at Christmas as we were roasting marshmallows with the grandkids. Then I looked at it again really closely and marveled at the complexity and power of a God who could create such a thing as fire! I asked my son-in-law Justin for a verse… He immediately said “Our God is an all consuming fire!” Hebrews 12:14-29. Here are excerpts…

“Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. …You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe,

…for our “God is an all consuming fire.”
