When He has tried me--I shall come forth as gold!
(William Purton, "Lessons of Peace in the School of Affliction" 1868)
"Look, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have purified you in the furnace of affliction!" Isaiah 48:10
To purify gold or silver, the refiner puts it into a furnace. Great heat separates the dross from the precious metal. Out of the fire, comes forth the precious substance clean and pure.
So likewise with the child of God. The character may be true gold--yet not pure gold. And so the Lord's mercy says, "I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away your dross. I will purify you in the furnace of affliction!" Yes, even as in great heat gold is tried--so in the sharpness of pain and sorrow, does God test and purify His redeemed children.
Let me, then, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is afflicting me. This testing of my faith is the gracious dealing of the Refiner, who seeks to cleanse me. In the furnace of affliction, God's mercy wills to purify me. May I strive to say, as righteous Job said: "When He has tried me--I shall come forth as gold!"
The pain of passing through the fire is keen. The fiery test is not easily endured. Such is our nature, that we all shrink from the furnace of affliction. Indeed, it is very hard to bear the of pain of bodily weakness.
But the Refiner's love chooses the trial!
His wisdom limits it!
His power strengthens us to bear it!
O Lord God, sanctify this trial according to Your wisdom. From pride and self-will; from earthliness of temper; from carnal lusts and sensual imaginations--purify my soul. Make me humble, trustful, gentle, heavenly-minded. In suffering, may I know that You are blessing me. Free my soul from earthly baseness, and beautify it with holiness. Make me, O Lord, like unto pure gold--a vessel fit for Your use and bright with Your glory!
Almighty God, You sent this affliction--You measured it. O bless it, for Christ's sake. Amen.
[06/26/16] Service at 2pm in English at Ingólfsstræti 19! :)
June 12 we start meeting in a new meeting space, Aðventkirkjan, located at Ingólsstræti 19 in downtown Reykjavík, as always all are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.
From June the 12th we will be meeting in a different location, at a different time.
From now on services will be at 2pm in the church called "Aðventkirkja" located at Ingólfsstræti 19, 101, Reykjavík.
Services at Loftstofan Baptist Church have now been moved to 15:30 (3:30pm) on Sundays.
The meeting place is still the same, a school by the name of Fjölbrautaskólinn í Garðabæ, located at Skolabraut 6, 210, Gardabaer.
"When a soul is truly brought into the presence of the living God, boasting ceases, our comeliness is turned into corruption (Dan 10:8), and we cry, “Woe is me! for I am undone” (Isa 6:5). When God makes to the soul a personal revelation of His wondrous perfections, that individual is effectually convinced of his own wretchedness.
The more we are given to discern the ineffable glory of the Lord, the more will our self- complacency wither. It is in God’s light, and in that only, “we see light” (Psa 36:9). When He shines into our understandings and hearts, and brings to light “the hidden things of darkness,” we perceive the utter corruption of our nature and are abominable in our own eyes.
While we measure ourselves by our fellows, we shall, most likely, think more highly of ourselves than we ought to think (Rom 12:3); but when we measure ourselves by the holy requirements of God’s nature, we cry “I am dust and ashes” (Gen 18:27). True repentance changes a man’s opinion of himself." ~ Arthur Pink, "Vile"
But it leads to the bottomless pit!
"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:13-14
There is another gate than the narrow one, altogether different therefrom, for it is wide and gives entrance into a broad way--but it leads to the bottomless pit! It is the course of this world (Ephesians 2:2), in which all its unregenerate citizens are found. It is the path of self-will and self-gratification. It is wide because those in it own no restrictions. They have broken down the commandments of God which were designed to be a hedge about them. It is therefore a pleasant and easy way to the flesh, for . . .
no inquiry or diligent search has to be made in order to find it,
no resolution and perseverance are called for in order to continue treading it,
no self-denial has to be practiced to remain therein.
A dead fish can float with the stream, but only a living one can swim against it. Just so, the unregenerate mechanically follow this road, for there is nothing in them to resist the law of gravity. The going is smooth and easy--because it is all downhill!
