6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:6-7, ESV)
Like a refiners’ fire is the trial to our faith. It boils the impurities to the top. They are skimmed off and the gold is reboiled. The process is repeated over and over again. But the end result is pure gold. Your faith is worth much more to God than pure gold!
Prayer: Lord, refine me removing the dross of my life.
