Buy Gold Refined – 31 Days of Truth {Day 10}

2 Comments

Did you know that we are to seek after growth? To go after refinement? I think I subconsciously knew that, but a passage in Revelation really recently hit me.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

We are counseled to buy gold refined from the Lord!  Do you know how gold is refined? Through fire. What trials are refining you through the fires of life right now? Do you seek that fire or just endure it? He also says that those He loves he disciplines. I’m thankful for that! (Rev 3:15-20)

So often we hear the popular verse:

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

But look at the context! He stands ands knocks, yes, and He comes to eat with us, but it is after repentance, and us pursuing to be gold refined.

Want His presence at your table? Seek Him with me to buy from Him gold refined.

Today’s tidbit of truth: The Lord not only wants us to buy Gold Refined from Him, but He offers it to us in the first place!
