1 Peter 1:3-7

FAITH TESTED BY FIRE

“…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” 1 Peter 1:6a-7.

‘Tough times’, Robert H. Schuller says, ‘never last, but tough people do’! This saying summarizes the life and ministry experience of Charles Edwin Smith who was the only survivor of the four American Baptist missionaries who arrived the shores of Nigeria in 1884. In addition to the loss of his missionary partners, he also lost two wives one after the other. One would think he would abandon the mission field to go and lick his wounds. But he was resilient. He stayed on and later became the founding father of a foremost theological institution which has been training God-called individuals for 120 years now.
Having offered praise to God in this passage, Apostle Peter acknowledges that the brethren may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. But he states that the suffering is only for a while if compared with the praise, glory and honour that lie ahead. He makes it clear that the trials are meant to prove the genuineness of their faith. Don’t give up because of the tough times you are passing through. The hardship is not meant to break you but to make you and you will come out stronger with your faith proven beyond every iota of doubt.

Birthday Blessing: “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us” Romans 8:18.

“Breakdown comes before breakthrough”. – Dough Addison
