Burning away The Dross
Cherubim and Seraphim Church Unification Campus Fellowship A Daily Scripture Exposition. Saturday, August 20, 2022 Malachi 3: 3 NLT He will sit like a refiner of silver, burning away the dross. He will purify the Levites, refining them like gold and silver, so that they may once again offer acceptable sacrifices to the Lord. Burning away The Dross At the beginning of the book of Malachi, God was unequivocal about HIS displeasure with the priests, who were primarily of the tribe of Levi. And given the magnitude of their atrocities, one could have written them off. Or better still, hold the view that God will abandon or eventually destroy them. But God does not rejoice at the death of any sinner; hence HE made a plan for them. Malachi said God would sit like a refiner of silver. A refiner of silver does not leave the silver unattended even though the temperature rises to 800°C. In the same way, God would not stop until every and any form of impurity in the lives of those whom HE called is trashed. Beloved, if you have messed up, please do not push back on God's refining process because it is only when impurity in your life is taken out that God can accept your sacrifice. Prayer Heavenly Father, please purify and refine me with the blood of Jesus. In Jesus's name. Amen.
