I recently went camping at Refugio State Beach with my church. We spent one night sitting around a campfire, singing worship songs, and hearing testimonies of God's grace. As one after another shared their conversion stories, the phrase "out of the flames" came to my mind. I could see the fire burning in the middle of our group and imagine the judgment which all of us deserve. "But," I thought, "God has plucked us out of the flames."
Though we deserve His judgment, He endured His own wrath that we might enjoy Him. Praise God for rescuing us out of the flames.
