JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verses are First Peter 1, verses 6 and 7.

“In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith (of greater worth than gold)…..may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”

The Bible talks about certain treasures in our relationship with God that are worth more than gold. One of those treasures is genuine faith.

When trials come into our lives, those are opportunities for our faith to be refined. God works through the circumstances of our lives to speak to us about our need for His grace. He may also speak to us of getting rid of certain practices or attitudes that are unholy.

A genuine faith will shine with godly integrity and reflect God’s glory.

These faith-building verses highlight the precious value of genuine faith to be worth more than gold in the Year of Relationship.
