Theme: God Is A Consuming Fire
Scripture : Deuteronomy 4:24
For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God!
Points To Ponder
We live in the age of Love. God is Love. God understands. God knows my
situation. God would never turn His back on me.
And you know…God is Love!
And He doesn’t want anyone to go to Hell.
That’s why He sacrificed HIS only Son to pay for our sin and provide a way of
But do not be fooled!
God IS a consuming Fire—He IS a Jealous God!
And HE does expect us to know that!
I grew up in a time when life was strict. We heard a lot about fire and brimstone
and how God prepared a special place called Hell for the devil and all who serve
I was scared to death of hell.
I would do anything to NOT go to hell.
That was my motivation growing up.
But I have to tell you—I respected what God asked of me—and I did it!
I knew He loved me, but I also know—His Fire was hot and could consume me!
We don’t talk about that much anymore, but…it’s still true.
God does love us- God does understand, but…
We understand how someone committed a crime, got caught, went to trial, and…
Was convicted, and…wound up in jail, serving time, because of their crime.
See? God understands, but…
He is not going to get you out of the jail you deserve to be in.
So don’t be deceived—God IS love, but…He is also a consuming Fire.
If you know what you are doing is not pleasing God…
QUIT DOING IT!
It’s just that simple!
Well…it can be…and, it should be.
It’s up to you!
God of Love?
It really is time to clean up our mess…
He deserves that!
Let’s Pray Together
Lord Jesus, forgive me for the times that I just say “God understands” as an
excuse to not try to do better. God forgive me for the times I have disappointed
you with my unwillingness to work on areas of my life that are not pleasing to
you. Lord, search my soul…reveal the areas that I need to work on and help me
have the strength to tackle those areas and make them pleasing to you. I know
that you are jealous of anything that takes your place in my life. I know that you
deserve my full attention and my top priority.
Lord, help me with the areas I need help in. Thank you , Jesus.
