Will you rush to it or run from it? Your answer might depend on whether you’re sitting in a crowded movie theater or standing frozen-fingered and hungry near a glowing campsite. Fire seems to require a “friend or foe” screening, doesn’t it? Let’s be honest, the flames that warm can equally harm.
Maybe you have the same dilemma getting close to God, the one described in scripture as “the all-consuming fire”? Is He friend or foe? Would you run to Him or from Him? You may wonder like many, “Can I really trust God with my heart?” After all, no one wants to get burned by love.
But what if God really is trustworthy? What if, up-close to the fire of His love, He warms your heart and shapes your life for the wonder and purpose always meant for you? What if your intimacy with Him actually becomes your greatest gift to the world?
Isn’t that a Fire worth running to and a Forge worth entering? Best of all—get this: God warmly invites you, “Come!”
