Once again, they have no fear of fire… Because it burns in their hearts already.
(see Isaiah 24)
And because it does, their eyes are single,
and their hands are clean.
Stop for a minute.
Look at your hands.
Are they clean enough to hold what is holy?
Are they strong enough to fight unselfishly? (even if it means fighting to their own loss)
Are they pure enough for God to call them trustworthy? And to trust to them the gentlest of His children?
If not, why not?
Are they benevolent?
Are they scarred?
Or are they soft from years of self-service? Are they marred by self-interest? Are they strong to accomplish that which will serve them well, even if at the eternal expense of another?
Or worse, are they stained with blood from touching what is not theirs?
Just think about it.
I only ask because He asked me…
