"...I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on My name and I will answer them; I will say, "They are My people," and they will say, "The Lord is our God."" (Zechariah 13:9)
We all begin our Christian journey as rough wood that God desires to transform into gold. Turning us into this end product requires certain experiences that will stretch our faith, our frame, and our very life. Remember that Sainthood springs out of suffering. If we can stand the strain of this intense process, we will come forth as gold-as a sweet-smelling offering to our Maker.
