Love

Almighty God…

He is love.

He is light.

He is life.

He is spirit.

He is with us.

God does not have love. He is love.

God does not have light. He is light.

God does not have life. He is life.

God is not a man. He is spirit.

God is not distant. He is near.

Imagine the Almighty Spirit of God dressed in a garment of light, threads of fierce love woven one way and threads of piercing light woven perpendicular to them.

Imagine this force of love and light so intense that it consumes everything in existence.

Now imagine a glowing ember of that force growing inside your heart.

God is not a kindling fire. He is a consuming fire.

Have you ever considered letting His fiery love consume you?
