Fire must consume a leaf.

If you were to place a dried-out leaf into the presence of fire, you would notice that the fire would not hesitate to consume the leaf in a matter of seconds. The fire must consume the leaf because of its very nature. Even if the fire didn’t want to dispose of the leaf, it wouldn’t matter; it still must consume it because their natures are diametrically opposed to one other.

Our God is a consuming fire. By His very nature, God must consume anything and everything that opposes His nature. We must put on the Lord Jesus Christ, or we will be consumed by the ever-pure, burning holiness of the King of kings. In a fire, the only safe place is where it has already burned. On Judgment Day, the only place of safety is where God’s wrath has already been—Christ.

Deuteronomy 4:24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
