Consuming Fire

Passion is a consuming fire
He reaches inside to remove
All that is needless to throw on a pyre
So that what’s left might improve.

As your flames reach toward the sky
Most will see and stay away
Lest sparks jump as they pass by
And they’re scorched by your light display

But those without passion are dead,
So do not embrace jealousy,
Though the heat of the fire may cause dread,
A corpse is a worse thing to be.


Hebrews 12: 27 This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29 for our God is a consuming fire.

Happy Holy Week!
