Reaching Silver Status

Posted: October 2, 2011 in Uncategorized

Malachi 3:3 “And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver…” The credit card companies attempt to get us to spend more money by enticing us to reach gold, platinum, or silver status. The Lord has a goal for every life; he desires for us to reach the silver status. He is not content with us being an average Christian or a little better than someone else. Therefore, from His mighty throne in Heaven, He patiently sits and implements his plan to help us grow and mature. The refining and purifying process is rarely enjoyable, yet very essential. Often the fire is uncomfortable and the cleansing is inconvenient. However, I am learning to be grateful for God’s working in my life. Along the church planting trail, God has used different circumstances and situations to knock of the rough edges and make me holy. I don’t know if I will ever reach silver status, but by God’s help I will keep trying.
