The title for our discussion this week is suggested by an anecdote in which a goldsmith is refining his gold, continuing with the process until the gold perfectly reflects the goldsmith’s face. The implication is that God keeps on with the process of refining us until he brings us to full perfection. Is complete refinement God’s goal? Is that kind of perfection possible this side of the second coming?
