Now meeting at: 4915 Charlestown Road, New Albany, Indiana — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

The Trials of God’s Saints

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ    (1 Peter 1:6-7)
     Remember to pray for those saints who are in great affliction and cast down by the trials and troubles of this present time. Let us weep with those who weep and pray that God would comfort them with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  For to the saint there is no other comfort that soothes our hearts and dries our tears than to hear of God’s Sovereign eternal electing Love that stirs our hearts to Love God.  It is Christ’s one offering for sin that gives us joy and peace no matter our circumstance.  It is the message of the Holy Spirit’s keeping power and grace that assures us that no matter what men do, or how Satan roars against us, we are sure of eternal life and glory in Christ. 
     Believer, when He shall appear then will all sorrow cease, all tears will be wiped away by the tender hand of Christ.  Then we shall forever worship Christ in peace and love.  Let us therefore look in hope for this day that is soon to come.
