14 kt. Gold
June 4, 2012
The term for pure gold is 24 karat gold. This means that there is no other kind of metal mixed in. In order for gold to be refined to this purity, it must go through many instances of being in a burning fire until all the dross and other impurities have been removed. This is the way that God refines us to be more like His Son, Jesus. Once we have accepted His free gift of salvation, we have Jesus inside of us and must encounter times of “heat” in our lives until Jesus is clearly seen. Thankfully, God never allows us to experience more than we can handle. But there is still “heat” in our lives that we must face so that all of that which is not of Jesus can be removed.
