Ministry Moment with Michelle: "Through the Fire!"
It's the hair for me! Hot! Like fire! Reminds me of Chaka Khan, the R & B singer.
Some time ago, maybe around 1984, Chaka Khan released a song titled, "Through The Fire". I loved that song, and just about everything else that Chaka sang! Still have some of her vinyls. This song, somewhat romantic, is about someone who is willing to put it all on the line because she feels she's met the love of her life.
In one lyric, she sings, "Through the fire; To the limit, to the wall; for a chance to be with you, I'd gladly risk it all...Through the fire".
Sounds like something God said to the Israelites. He was their only Savior; however, they were stubborn and rebellious. Isaiah 43:2 tells us that the Lord told them, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
Isn't that a good feeling to know that we have someone who is willing to go "to the limit, to the wall", for us? He is always in our presence.
Better still, how willing are you to risk it all for a chance to be with Him in Eternity? I'll gladly risk it all!
