One of my favorite images in the word. A local jeweler also shared this with us on a Sunday morning. Good stuff!

--Malachi 3:3 says: 'He shall sit as a
refiner and purifier of silver.'


This verse puzzled some women
in a Bible study and they
wondered what this statement
meant about the character and
nature of God.

One of the women offered to
find out the process of refining
silver and get back to the group
at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a
silversmith and made an
appointment to watch him at
work. She didn't mention
anything about the reason for
her interest beyond her curiosity
about the process of refining
Silver.

As she watched the silversmith,
he held a piece of silver over
the fire and let it heat up. He
explained that in refining silver,
one needed to hold the silver in
the middle of the fire where
the flames were hottest as to
burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God
holding us in such a hot spot;
then she thought again about
the verse that says: 'He sits as a
refiner and purifier of silver.'

She asked the silversmith if it
was true that he had to sit there
in front of the fire the whole time.

The man answered that yes, he
not only had to sit there holding
the silver, but he had to keep
his eyes on the silver the entire
time it was in the fire. If the silver
was left a moment too long in the
flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a
moment. Then she asked the
silversmith, 'How do you know
when the silver is fully refined?'
He smiled at her and answered,
'Oh, that's easy -- when I see
my image in it.'

If today you are feeling the heat
of the fire , remember that God
has his eye on you and will keep
watching you until He sees His
image in you. Pass this on right
now. This very moment, someone
needs to know that God is
watching over them.

And, whatever they're going
through, they'll be a better
person in the end.
'Life is a coin. You can spend it
anyway you wish, but you can
only spend it once.'

LOVE IN JESUS!!
