I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich (Revelation 3:18 NKJV)
Gold signifies power, glory and wealth especially spiritual wealth. The Lord is telling us in this Scripture to climb higher into Him, and His presence to experience His beauty and glory. He is encouraging us not to be content with mediocrity and the ordinary life. We were born to manifest as the sons of God. We were born to be purified in our faith and walk with God and be mature.
It will cost us and we need to pay the price. That price is what the Scripture refers to as buy. We need to buy gold from Christ and to buy this gold means that we need to set aside time daily to wait upon the Lord and seek His face for glory and glory upon glory. We need to keep climbing deeper into Him. He is the one that we must seek as a precious Jewel. Jesus is the glory of God and we need to seek Him as the ultimate price.
The blood of Jesus has been shed for our redemption and Christian maturity. Living a life, below the standard required by our great God means that we are despising the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice on the Cross to an extent and degree. We are wasting the grace that God has given us and is willing to saturate us with.
The Lord is calling us to buy gold from Him and I pray that we hear and obey that call. May grace, mercy and peace be ours in full measure. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
