In Addition to my Last Post . . .

"But there is no use in trying to engraft an opposite nature on one's own. What I am, that I must be, except as God changes me into His own image."

I really like this quote and it reminds me of a story that was e-mailed to me about Malachi 3:3.

"He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."

This verse was brought up in a women's Bible study group one night and none of the ladies in the group could explain it. So one of the women decided to find out for herself what it meant. So she set up an appointment to watch a silversmith as he worked.
So, 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
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.'

I just wanted to thank you for posting this simple little quote that reminded me of how much our Lord loves us!

In Christ,
