Fire

From Blog09

I've stood and watched a building burn
With flames so hot they melted steel
And called us all from miles around
To stare in horror and in awe.

I've watched a wildfire burn the hills
Advancing quickly mile by mile
Until the ancient trees were gone,
Reduced to charcoal or to ash.

God's fire is coming on the earth
To test the nature of our works
That we have built on Jesus Christ.
Lord, give us works that will survive.

...Each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.
--1 Corinthians 3:13, ESV
