The hot furnace is Christ’s workhouse …

“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
