If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10).

I tried this blue and can vouch for how vibrant and brilliant the hue of the flame is! This is my favourite blue comp at the moment!

Cheers, Seb.

Very nice! I think Bleser made a similar composition.
