670 The Purpose of God’s Work of Refinement

Verse 1

Refinement is not easy for anyone,

it’s very hard to accept the process.

But in refinement God reveals

His righteous disposition to man;

He shows man His requirement, gives enlightenment,

and there’s more pruning, dealing.


Chorus

Refinement doesn’t mean removing people from before God,

nor does it mean destroying them in hell.

It’s to change man’s dispositions,

intentions, their old views,

changing their love for God,

and changing their whole life, changing their whole life.


Verse 2

Through comparing facts and truth,

God gives man greater knowledge

of themselves, the truth, and His will,

allowing man to have truer, purer love of God.

These are God’s aims

as He carries out refinement.


Chorus

Refinement doesn’t mean removing people from before God,

nor does it mean destroying them in hell.

It’s to change man’s dispositions,

intentions, their old views,

changing their love for God,

and changing their whole life, changing their whole life.


Bridge

All the work in man has purpose and importance.

God’s work is never meaningless.

It always benefits man.

Refinement is a test of man

and a form of real training.

Only through refinement can their love

serve its own function.


Chorus

Refinement doesn’t mean removing people from before God,

nor does it mean destroying them in hell.

It’s to change man’s dispositions,

intentions, their old views,

changing their love for God,

and changing their whole life, changing their whole life.
