Stand the Test

Who could dispute that life in this world is filled with trials, challenges, and tests. Our Heavenly Father transforms those experiences for His children into opportunities for growth and renewal. The challenge for us is to trust our Father in all things, as He desires to enable us to stand the test. Even Jesus faced tests and trials while in the wilderness. Jesus committed Himself to His Father, and because He overcame, He enables us to persevere and stand the test. What tests and trials are you facing right now? How is God at work by His Spirit to strengthen you and bring you growth and renewal as He brings you through those experiences?

Scripture References: James 1:12-18, Mark 1:9-15

From Series: "Time for Renewal"

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” — Romans 12:2 Our Lenten journey towards the cross gives us an opportunity to be renewed by the power of God as His Spirit works through the Word and Sacraments. Invite someone to join you as together are we are transformed during this “Time for Renewal.”
