Preparing Us for Glory

“Man in affliction will receive the imprint of divine wisdom. It prepares us for glory. The potter beats the clay to make it well- tempered, moulds it on the wheel, and then bakes it in the oven before use. A wooden vessel is turned and cut before it is fit. Gold is heated and pounded before it is complete. So every vessel of mercy must be treated before it is fit for glory. The cross sharpens our faith and sets a sharp edge and lustre upon it. The stone is hewed, cut, carved, and polished. So suffering saints are prepared for the highest degrees of glory.” –William Cooper, as quoted by Richard Rushing in “Voices From The Past” p. 215

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
