He shall purify them as gold and silver

God’s people are as precious metals, afflictions are His furnace, purification is His design. He therefore puts them into the furnace, and He keeps them there until His end is accomplished. But He supervises the whole process Himself: He regulates the heat, watches its operation, and sits awaiting the fulfillment of His design. He will not be disappointed, for if one affliction does not produce the desired end He sends another.–Daily Remembrancer November 11 Evening

This purging and purifying the author here speaks of is personal. A Christian’s life is not smooth. If it was then Satan has us exactly where he wants us. But God uses the devil as an agent for His own good.

From a Christian to a disciple of Jesus Christ

I tell more of my story of how I continued to seek the Lord and of my journey around Australia, in 1974, which led me out of the Roman Catholic Church. I sought for the baptism and power of the Holy Spirit because I desired to be a witness for my Lord. I outline my meeting with other Christians and the Children of God and finally my infilling of the Holy Spirit. This involved my commitment to the Lord to forsake all else to serve Him and Him alone. All the glory to God.

Hymn DR Oct 21 M
