The Refiner’s Fire

October 30, 2022

Bible Text: Malachi 2:17-3:5 |

As we continue in the prophecy of Malachi, the prophet tells the people of God that the One they are waiting for will come, but his coming will not be as they expect it to be. He will come as the deliverer as promised, but before being the deliverer, he will be the refiner. The picture of God’s people being refined as though with fire is not a very pleasant one. Refinement is unpleasant, it’s hard, it’s...hot. Yet the result is always to the glory of our Lord God, and for our growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
