Hebrews 12:28
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
If you have received the grace of God, then you no longer have to fear and tremble, for He is your loving Father and He is not angry with you. His fire is warming to our hearts and minds, therefore, let us serve Him "acceptably", in other words, do those things that are pleasing to Him by loving Him and walking in His ways. But let those who are without, those who forsake and disesteem His Word wherein the promise of their heritage lies, fear and tremble before Him for as the Word of God declares, "Our God is a consuming fire."

My highlighted verses:Hebrews 12:29  For our God is a consuming fire.

Paul quotes this from the Book of Deuteronomy so in conclusion let us read the verse just prior to this which sums up what he has been teaching us in the latter part of this 12th chapter of Hebrews.
Deut. 4:23-24
Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which He made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
Do not allow any other "images" or "idols" to be engraved (etched, sealed) in your mind where the law of God, His Holy Word, is to be written (epigrapho).
[24] For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
