When you are in the fire, remember that the fire doesn’t destroy the gold. It only makes it more valuable and stronger. You’re not rewarded for “hanging in there.” It’s the blessing we get for hanging onto Jesus.
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. – 1 Peter 1:6
- Our hope in Jesus carries us past our trials.
- The faith that we display during trials is the same faith that delivers us to Jesus.
- Our hope is strengthened by our sufferings.
- The reward for trusting Him will be the salvation of your souls.
- Before there was anything, you were on God’s mind.
- Fire-tested faith results in blessing, glory and honor.
