Watch out - these stories are H...H...Hot!
Each one is about fire - but there's not a matchstick or a marshmallow in sight! They are all from the bible and show how God has used fire throughout scripture in a variety of ways. He used fire to get Moses to pay attention.
He used it to help the Israelites find their way through the dark. He used it to keep Adam and Eve out of the garden. But fire also appears in the New Testament... soldiers with torches arrest Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane. Peter warms himself by some flames while at the same time he denies the Lord Jesus. Jesus himself cooks a fish Barbie on the beach after his resurrection and the Holy Spirit comes down on the disciples at Pentecost with tongues of flame.
