The ABC’s of Christianity (Adversity Builds Christ-like character) assumes the sovereign good pleasure and will of God to work out all things according to His eternal decree and purposes. Bad things don’t just happen, “indeed, all things come not by chance, but by His fatherly hand” (H.C. Q. #27). Do you truly believe this? If so, how should it be evident in your life and especially in your conversation? If not, why not?
The Sermon Outline is as follows:
- The Church as the Guardian of the Truth renders a just judgment
- The Churches rejoice in the Truth and receive further teaching of the Truth
- Even division and separation are so guided by the Lord as to further promote the Truth
