Luke 3:17 (NIV)
His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
God is a patient guy, but we would all be prudent not to confuse patient with impotent or sloppy. He will not wait forever to fix what we have broken.
And it will take a very long time to burn all the trash we have amassed…in our hearts alone.
Make no mistake–
We will all be salted with fire.
