    351.jpgA popular contemporary praise song contains the words, "Purify myheart, Let me be as gold ... Refiner's fire, My heart's one desire, Is to be holy, Set apart for You Lord, I choose to be holy." These sentiments, written by Brian Doerksen, reflect the Christian's deep longing to be sanctified and to fulfill his Creator's intentions for his life. The refinement process alluded to is used to remove impurities from precious metals - a task that requires intense heat (For comparison, water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, but gold doesn't melt until it reaches a temperature of 1,945 degrees!). As the gold liquefies in the smelting furnace, unwanted properties called slag rise to the surface. After cooling, the slag is chiseled away and the purified metal remains. Similarly, when a believer yields to God, the Master Refiner strips away those things that hinder sanctification so the beauty of His character can shine through with clarity.

    The image of the smelter appears numerous times in Scripture. In the Old Testament, the prophet Malachi speaks of Israel's need for personal and national repentance, stating that the Lord "will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; He will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver (Malachi 3:3)." What will result? "Then (emphasis added) the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness." God knows just what is necessary to rid our lives of undesirable traits and get us back on track. Unlike a wildfire that burns uncontrollably, destroying whatever is in its path, the cleansing flames of the Lord remove only the slag. His actions are skillfully wrought to draw His children closer to Himself.A number of parallels can be found between Malachi's generation and our own. Pagan influences abounded, and while God's people were "going through the motions" of practicing their faith, their hearts and commitments were elsewhere. In this context, Malachi stepped forward to warn the Israelites about the consequences of their disobedience and to call them to renew their devotion to the Lord. The prophet understood that before the nation could experience revival, individual lives had to be transformed.

    If we as Christians are to influence our nation, we too must begin with personal holiness. We cannot expect our society to embrace morality as mandated by God if the actions of His people don't reflect His teachings. We must echo David's supplication in Psalm 139:23-24: "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting." What a wonderful example of humility and submission to the Lord! If we will seek His kingdom and righteousness with equal sincerity, we can be confident that He will direct us and reveal His truth in new and amazing ways...
