“We are called to worship God acceptably with the positive affirmation that because He is a consuming fire, we have reason to fear if we don’t worship Him acceptably.” – John MacArthur, Jr.
Father, forgive us for forgetting that You are a consuming Fire. For the sake of Your name, grant us a fresh vision of You as a consuming fire. Put the dread of You back into our hearts. In Jesus’ name, amen. “For the LORD your God is a consuming fire . . .” (Deut. 4:24, NIV).
