Faith Under Pressure
James 1: 2-4
‘Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colours. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.’
Last month we talked a little about faith. Sometimes it’s easier to talk about, it than to experience it or live it out!
As I read this passage this morning the phrase ‘forced into the open’ jumped off the page at me.
But we all know that without pressure, we often won’t see the end product.
O God, squeeze me please!
