“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4
Today, let us thank God for every trial and test that we have faced.
We are all subject to trials and testings of faith. No one is exempted. In fact, Abraham received the validation of being called the Father of faith when he underwent the ultimate test of faith.
Looking at Abraham’s example, we understand that God’s tests prove and purify our faith. He doesn’t leave us as we are. He improves us and helps us grow from glory to glory.
Because faith is more than an inner spiritual attitude. It involves action. Faith works. And by trials and testings of faith, we exercise our trust in God, helping us develop as mature sons and daughters of God. And this is our goal, that we become salt and light and lead others back to God.
