  • Do you know the difference in being tested and temptation?

    We know in school students are tested regularly on how they are retaining and understanding the material they are learning. Customers test-drive vehicles to see if they perform as advertised before buying. Our character and spiritual commitments are tested by the fires of hardship, persecution and suffering. The Bible distinguishes between temptation, which is used by Satan to lead into sin, and testing which is used by God to purify us and move us toward maturity and growth.

  • Very few people go through life without something bad happening. Bad things happen. Why?

    Sometimes bad things happen because the devil is real, evil, a spiritual being, powerful, and out to deceive and destroy us. “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” (I Peter 5:8-9)

    A second thing to remember is that sometimes bad things happen because we live in an imperfect world where imperfect things happen. Cars break down, our health fails, money runs out, children go astray, loved ones die, and so it goes.
