The Fourth Man

Our God doesn’t back away from our suffering
He does not turn His back when we are in the fire
He joins us in it

He came down
Clothing Himself in humanity
So that He too could feel the flames
We were thrown into the fire
We had no choice but He did

The fires of life will try to harm us
They will threaten us
Our friendships, our security, our lives
As we enter in, our vision is taken up by the hungry flames

But when we walk in
We will forget the flames
Because we will see Him
Who is so much more powerful
Who is with us always
But sometimes it takes the flames for us to notice

We will not be consumed
We will make it out
We are never alone
