        • 1. Fear: God is powerful. Do not offend Him!

          • b. Sees God’s right to punish & chastise us
          • c. Sees God’s love requiring our refining
        • 2. God is loving, but also Holy and fearsome
          It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Heb. 10:31

          Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” Heb. 12:28-29
        • 3. We fear God but aren't afraid of Him
          the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love. Ps. 147:11

          In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1Jn 4:17-18
          • a. We arent afraid: we know He loves us
          • b. So we welcome our Refiner

The Bottom Line: We Welcome the Refiner and offer Him all our Dross.
