Faith Like Gold

Stephen Altrogge 90x115by Stephen Altrogge

“…though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:6–7)

God uses trials to accomplish many things, things we can’t even see or fathom, in the life of the Christian. These helpful verses in 1 Peter tell us two, wonderful things that God accomplishes through suffering.
