His Sacred Flame enlightens, not inflames

Exodus 3:2There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. 3Then Moses said, ‘I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burned up.’

When the Holy Spirit is in us, it is like the fire blazing in the bush – illuminating and enlivening, speaking and prompting to action- not burning and destroying anything.  The Holy Spirit illuminates and inspires.  It does not inflame nor incite nor set fire to anything or anyone.
