The Lord God wants to wring out of his people the last vestiges of worldliness and selfishness, the remains of carnality and foolishness. He wants to produce in them all good holiness and pure goodness. He will break and mold and re-form according to his will. The more pliable soul will conform more easily. But the work of godliness will tax even the most submissive among the people of God. For the Lord, no effort on his part is too great to prepare his people for eternity. He will do what he must, and we will endure his loving touch.
