2023 Advent - Day 15



After you have lit the candle of Joy, prepare yourself for worship, listen to the following song, and sing along if you know it: "Refiner" by Maverick City Music

As you worship, meditate on the purity of Jesus. 


Read the following passage: Malachi 3: 1-4

As you study, consider the Old Testament promise of the Messiah as the Coming Refiner. Then, answer the questions below to dive deeper!

Reflection Questions: 

  • Reflect on a time when you felt spiritually “refined” or “purified”. What did that experience teach you about God and spiritual growth?
  • How does verse 1 point to John the Baptist in the New Testament? How was John able to “prepare the way” before the Lord’s coming?
  • What kind of “offerings” can we give to the Lord that would be acceptable and pleasing to Him this Advent season? (Hint: we are not talking about money!)
  • What does this passage teach you about the purity of Jesus and, consequently, the purity He requires of us as His followers?


Lord, we thank You for continually refining us as we grow in our relationship with You. We praise You for making us pure by the sacrifice of Your blood and for growing us in righteousness.
