The Gospel: Trials

Dear Woke Christian,

This is a touchy topic, I know. Many of us have been taught that the Christian journey is an easy one, so the idea of trials is foreign and having a good outlook on them is even more so. However, I propose to you that the Gospel does just that. It helps us see every struggle, trial and even real out right persecution as a gift from a loving Father meant to make us more like our dear Lord.

Read Romans 5:1-5, Romans 8:28-29, James 1:2-4, and 2 Corinthians 12:7-11 to see what I mean. The Lord intends to mold us into His image and He’s using trials to do it. A steady Gospel diet will help us to keep that as our main thought no matter what we’re faced with.

How are you seeing trials, friend? Do you need to reorient your gaze to the Cross?
