Scripture: Proverbs 25:4
Pastor John Mendez
Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel;
Silver in its natural form easily attracts dross. Which is developed from the elements in the air. Such as moisture, bacteria and dust.
The Holy Spirit as the silversmith works more effectively on our lives when the dross is removed. It is the blood of Jesus that removes ‘sin’ and the dross of life. Though what we see on the exterior, sometimes hides what is in the interior. And so likewise, our lives in the ‘natural terms of life’ can attract a ‘spiritual dross,’ from the elements of life. Such as sadness, loss, pain, hurts, suffering, sin, abandonment and the list goes on. Lean into Jesus as he makes us clean daily.
Lord, help me to submit to you and to embrace the journey that you have set for me. Make me new, starting today. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
