Firebrands out of the Burning

Trapped in a burning block of flats: isn't this our worst nightmare? No way down and no way out; a ferocious fire or a terrible fall. It's a wonder more have not died in last night's London inferno, though I dare say the toll will yet rise. At tonight's prayer meeting, we prayed for relatives of its victims and all other survivors. 
Says the Lord through Amos the prophet: and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning. An inferno is a fitting picture of a life and death without Christ. May God bless the efforts of all who seek to pluck firebrands from the flames.
