Illustration of Mark 9:49 NLT — "Every person will be punished with fire."

Key Thought

The real character of our lives will not be left in doubt. Facades will fall. Hidden secrets will be revealed. Well-camouflaged sins will be brought out in the open. Every action will be made clear. Nothing can be hidden from the purifier's fire. All that is dross will be removed. Only what is pure will remain.

Today's Prayer

O LORD God Almighty, the judge of all people, I pray that the defects, impurities, and dross in my life will be purified in my life now so that you will be glorified in my life both now and in the day of judgement. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
