As Silver Refined: Answers to Life's Disappointments
By Renee@Doorkeeper on November 20, 2011
Kay Arthur’s latest book introduced me to some amazing heroes of the faith: A missionary who was captured and tortured by the people he wished to win to Christ. A man who never lost his hope while suffering through the bodily deterioration of ALS. A woman who was able to praise God in spite of a son who took his own life. A political prisoner who gave up his blanket, his only source of warmth, to the other man in his cell and won that man to Christ with his dying words . . . I read their stories of sacrifice with tears in my eyes.
What did these folks have in common? They had learned the secret of the Refiner’s fire. By finding God’s blessing in the midst of their suffering, they became sources of hope and encouragement for every life they touched.
Kay Arthur writes, “This image of refinement is something God touches on again and again in His Word. He is the true Refiner. We are His silver. And the fire is the fire of His making.
For through His fire our Refiner will perfect an awesome work, a divine work. He will take what is impure and make it pure. He will take what is dull and make it beautiful.
He will transform us into a treasure . . . Follow this link to continue reading!
