Your G-d Is a Consuming Fire

20 July 2013

The Atlantic ran an incredible 28-photo presentation of the 2013 Powerhouse Fire in California's Angeles National Forest.  The article, entitled The Terrible Beauty of California's Powerhouse Fire, included this image:

Without these powerful reminders from the creation, we can really lose sight of the significance and weight of the words of Scripture that describe the Creator:

So watch yourselves, that you do not forget the covenant of the LORD your God ... for the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. (Deuteronomy 4:23-24)
