The Hot Furnace

“The hot furnace is Christ’s workhouse:  the most excellent vessels of honour and praise have been formed there:  ‘I have  chosen thee in the furnace of affliction” (Isa. 43:10).  Manasses, Paul, the jailer, were all chosen in the fire:  God puts them into the furnace, and chooses them there, melts them, and stamps them with the image of Christ.”  –Thomas Manton “Psalm 119 – vol. 2” p. 116 (v. 71)

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.
