All Consuming

God is a consuming fire
not because He lacks love
(as some would attest)
but because He is love
Purest Love
purer than gold
stronger than death
and truer than all
loving hearts combined.

God is a consuming fire
not because He burns hot
(as does our rebellious indifference)
but because He is Life
Eternal Life
without beginning
stronger than death
and surer than
our clearest days and warmest nights.

God is a consuming fire
not because He lacks reason
(as some would allure)
but because He is
Reason Himself
The Very Reason
that we live or think
or hope
that love could ever be
stronger than death itself.

God is a consuming fire
consuming all
except Himself
because
HE IS
He is Perfect
He is Christ
His Perfect Sacrifice
our only Hope
in light of
God’s Glory
His All-Consuming Fire.
