Purifying Fire

…our God is a consuming fire,
a jealous God,
who wants all of us,
more than we can begin to understand or imagine,

who loves so passionately He laid down
His life for us,
shed His blood that we might live!

Who longs for us,
pursues us,
and promises
that when we walk through the fire,
we will not be burned or set ablaze,

but purified,
refined as gold,
set apart for His great glory.

Such love I cannot even
comprehend

for He alone
is Love.

We only love
because He
first
loves us.

(See: Hebrews 12:29, Deuteronomy 4:24, Isaiah 43:2c, 1 John 4:19)

  3. Wow. You are so right. We only love because He loved us first. Jesus’ death showed us the depth of His love, as both Father and Son. Beautifully written, as always, Cindee.
