All consuming fire

God is is an all-consuming fire.  That is a good thing.  He cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  Sin cannot stay in the presence of God.  Though we may not feel saved, we are, when we accept Jesus Christ.  Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.  When He washed the disciples feet, Jesus was showing us He cleanses us as we go through life from the stuff we pick up, the dust that we get on our feet. 

After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!” Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean …”  John 13:6-11
