consuming fire

 
God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29
 
This is not one of my favorite verses; actually, it has been one of my least favorite verses until recently.  On a snowy day (as I turned 40,) I listened throughout the day to a song about fire: ”Almighty God,” by Amy Stroup.  Since then, I have been noticing the theme of fire in the Bible and am trying to understand it better.

Almighty God
King of Me 
Come with fire 
And restore me
Almighty God
King of Me 
Come with fire
And restore me

I fall down  
I lay my crown 
At Your feet  
You say to me 
Lift your head 
You turned to me and said 
Come home

When I confess 
I am blessed 
When I lay it down
At Your feet
And patiently  
You say to me
Come home

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 a consuming fire.”
Hebrews 12:28
