Consuming Fire

In this series we will look at the characteristics we need to cultivate, as individuals and as a church, if we are to live as a people of faith, following Jesus passionately, and longing for revival.

Fire represents passion, purity, and the power of the Spirit, and the word ‘consuming’ means ‘to completely fill one’s attention or focus.’ So ‘Consuming Fire’ symbolises the idea of having our minds, our attention, and our focus entirely consumed by passion for God, and the power of the Spirit.
