Do You Want to Be Pure in Heart?
“He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness.” Malachi 3:3
Do you know that God is not as interested in making you happy as He is in making you holy? His goal is to purge and purify you. The moment you were saved, God began His work to make you pure and holy. He wants to burn out the dross and impurities in your life and present you as pure gold. You see, He is not as interested in your possessions as you are. He is not as interested in your job as you are. He is not as interested in your health as you are. But He cares for you so much that He wants to make you pure. And God will touch all of these things, if necessary, to make you holy.
How much do you want to be made pure and holy before the Lord? Not “holier than thou” in attitude—which is a turn-off—but pure in heart before Him. If that is your desire, ask Him to begin to burn out the dross. There may be something in your life right now you recognize as “dross.” If so—start a “closet-clean-out” in your heart today. He will help you bag it and take it to the curb!
