Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Grow Through Trials

July 25th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is to grow stronger through our trials.

In the book Trusting God, Jerry Bridges points out that a particular moth needs to struggle to free itself from its cocoon. Without the struggle, the moth would not survive very long beyond the cocoon.

The struggles we face in our Christian journey have a good purpose.

James 1:2 through 4 says, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

We don’t have to get excited about the actual trials that we are facing, but we can remain joyful at what God is able to do in us as we experience testing of our faith.

Growing stronger through trials is a Vital Step to a Radiant Faith that makes a difference in our world.
