God needs a seat for His flame to rest; the moment we see that we are a thornbush for God to rest as the flame in, burning with God as the fire and the fuel, we are qualified to serve God. The God of resurrection wants to burn on a despised, useless thornbush; this is the basis of our service to God.
Furthermore, as seen in Jer. 23:29, 5:14, and 20:9, the word of God is a fire that burns us and many of the things in which we have confidence. The word of God is a fire that burns us; when we come to God’s word, we receive not only nourishment but also something burning in us, burning away anything of the old and bringing in the impulse of the divine life to energize us. ~ Anonymous godman.com
