Consumed?

“But I don’t want to be consumed!”

Sometimes I wonder if I’m sort of like a candle.  Maybe we all are.  I sit around and discuss how to light up the world, spread the “aroma of Christ,” give heat to the cold and dark places.  But then I realize that I don’t really want to do all that.  I mean, that’s messy and disfiguring, and it’s hot too.  And who knows where all that melted wax would end up.  Plus, that would require me to be consumed.  Ugh.

But isn’t that what I’m called to do?  To be consumed for the King?  Isn’t that what we’re all called to do?  Lord, consume us with a passion for You.
