The Testing of Your Faith

The Apostle Peter wrote that the various trials that we face in life are due to the wonderful goal that God has intended, namely “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, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls” (1 Peter 1:7-9). The main points for the sermon (below) based on Exodus 32 are as follows:

  1. When desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin
  2. And sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death
  3. But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
