Tested By Fire

1 Peter 1:6

6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,

7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,

8 whom having not seen[a] you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,

9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

Pray..

As Christians sometimes we think we should— just live life all honkey dory and nothing ever go wrong

We think we should never get sick,————— or ever have a headache

We think our car should never break down

Our air conditioners should never stop working..

Are kid’s should never run a fever…

Our lawn mowers never should break down

We think ever day of life should be like a revival service.

We think we should just be floating around on cloud 9 all the time

We think our family members should always get along with us

Even at holiday’s

But all of us know better right ?

Anyone who has been a Christian for any link of time knows that is far from the truth

In fact if you study the Bible at all…

You know that many people go through trials and tribulation.

Many of great men and woman of the Bible went through some bad things

But they like us———— found out ever day is not going to be peaches and cream!

The fact is if your a Christian ———-there is going to be some trials and test that we are going to have to go through..

There are some road blocks designed by God

That you are going to have to go through

—Just look at what Job—And what he had to go through —

Job lost everything he had

All his kids

All of his livestock

His barns

He lost it all

Job was a good man and the Lord allowed test to come to him

The bible says in

Job 1:1

Job; was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil

He was a great man and yet he still got tested…

You know what that tells me

No one is excluded from the trials..

No matter how good you are

No matter how bad you are

Test are coming ……

-Just look at what king David had to go through-

He had to face a giant… In fact they sent him all alone to do that.

Then Saul his king tried to kill him.

He had to run for his life so many times from Saul

He lost a baby.

His own son tried to kill him and take over his kingdom..

He was constantly being tested by the Lord!

Now remember this is the man the Lord said was a man after His own heart

Church the bottom line is we are go to face some test

There are going to be some hard times.

There are going to be some days that feel like your prayers are no making it past the ceiling.

But when test come———— it does not mean that God does not love you

God is testing you to see if you truly love Him!

Deuteronomy 13

“If there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he gives you a sign or a wonder,

2 and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods’—which you have not known—‘and let us serve them,’
