Daniel 3; Proverbs 27:1; 1 Peter 1, 4, & 5.
Our faith will be tested.
Persecution, temptation, trials, should all be expected.
- If you suffer for the cross…celebrate!
- If you are insulted because of Christ…you are blessed!
- If you suffer because you are a Christian, the only shame you will have is if you deny Him.
Continue to do GOOD!
We will be stronger after being forged in the fire.
Main Point: Rejoice when God allows you to experience the forge…the hammer…the quench… for He only plans to make you stronger.
