MEMORY VERSE: “For our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:29)
God is good, loving, caring; He is our father, wanting the best for us always. This is a true side of God which we hold onto and it’s fine to do so, however, it’s self destructive to live the illusion that there isn’t more.
Face the truth, on which side are you? Do you sincerely reference Him? Don’t be deceived; even the Bible is clear on it- “…our God is a consuming fire”! The preceding verse urges us to “have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR”- anything short of that presents God as ‘terrible’
In all you do- reverence Him, fear Him!
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to totally reverence You and to encourage others to fear You at all times, so we’ll maintain a father-child relationship with You on earth and the eternity – soon to come!
Exodus 4:24, and Hebrews 12:29
