a Costly Price in your generation? that nobody else would pay?…

From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher

To: the costly stones

There are those of you who have paid a costly price in your generation, that nobody else would pay. separated. bruised. misunderstood. despised. rejected. Men and women of sorrow and acquainted with grief. Sometimes reputations destroyed. Sometimes characters maligned. Souls, forged in the furnace of affliction. It seems like the refiners fire was yours to go through. Sound familiar?

Why God? to be purified.

What is this God? to be formed.

What do you require of me God? to be conformed to the image of Jesus.

Isaiah 53   Romans 8:28,29
