We just finished studying Chapters 8-10 of Leviticus in our Bible Study Group this week. It has been quite powerful reading! What seems to be so exacting and legalistic has an amazing way of shining beams of light into the beauty of God’s grace and shining such a bright beam into the final sacrifice that is to come… seriously… Wow.
While studying this week we were also lead to Hebrews 12:28-29 and 1 Peter 2:9-12.
We discussed verse in Hebrews that says “Our God is an all consuming fire.”
It reminded me of this Performance Painting done at a youth camp a while back, so I thought I’d share. I think it’s my all time favorite painting.
Take your time and look at each painting…
Hebrews 12:28-29New International Version (NIV)
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”[a]
