“I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness.

Purify my heart, Lord; cleanse me as with a refiner’s fire or a laundry soap. Make me worthy to receive you, for you are worth more than gold or silver. Help me live today to honor you, through the grace of our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
