OUR FAITH IS AS PRECIOUS AS GOLD IN THE SIGHT OF GOD – 1 Peter

Christians Should Be Ready To Face Trials and Tribulations In Their Quest for Eternal Life

Children of God are encouraged to endure their trials and temptations for the sake of receiving an eternal reward in heaven. Believers must stay close to God with unwavering faith to receive an incorruptible crown of glory on the last day. It is written,

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:6-7).

Endurance Is A Key to God’s Abundant Grace And Favor

Every child of God ought to endure whatever challenges of faith that he or she may face, as the effort would be rewarded in heaven. God will crown Christians who endure persecutions and trials of faith in the last days. Christ has warned believers to not assume that Christianity would be easy. Christianity would not always come with the  “bread-and-butter” experience. The religion comes with its own challenges; non-believers will attack Christians and persecute them for their faith. Some Christians would be persecuted to death! However, any Christian who endures faith to the end will be rewarded.

It is important that every Christian stand firm in faith and endure persecution to receive God’s priceless eternal reward in heaven.

Pray For Strength To Endure All Manners of Tribulations As A Christian.

Dear God, please keep me in faith, and let me remain consistent with your holiness standard. Help me to endure persecution. Empower me through the Holy Spirit to stand firm against the trials and temptations so that I can make it to your kingdom. Let me qualify to hear your voice “well-done and welcome my good servant.” For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.
