There’s a fire, fire fire,
There’s a fire in my heart today.
It’s gonna burn, burn, burn,
It’s gonna burn all the trash away.
They’ll be a pile, pile, pile,
A big old pile I’m pulling out.
You’ll see it burn, burn, burn,
See it burning all about.
Pile on the selfishness!
Pile on the shame!
Pile on the idols
And all of the blame!
There’s a fire today, and boy is it a fire!
I’m feeding a flame, flame, flame,
A flame in my heart today.
He’s an all-consuming fire
And can’t be called another way.
It’s a hot day in my heart
And I’m rising from luke warm.
If you can’t take the heat
Then stay away, I warn,
And when all’s burned up, I’ll be gold.
A fire is in my heart today
Refining, refining, refining me
And burning the junk away
and I’ll be gold.

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.1 Corinthians 3:11-15
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.1 Peter 1:3-9
See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.”Hebrews 12:25-29
