[When] He has put me to the test, I will come out as gold

Aug 6, 2023    Pastor Mike

What is Job saying when he says "He knows the way I take"?

We all know what Gold is and that it is valuable, but do you know why and how hard it is to get it in its finished form? What is the difference between 10k and 24k gold?

How does knowing the gold refining process help us in understanding Jobs illustration?

This text and others says God "tests" us, why? Does He ever tempt us?

Do you know and practice the doctrine of "Progressive Sanctification"?

Are there other texts that use the metaphor of precious metals in regards to our faith? What do they teach?

IF God gave us everything that we wanted, would that win peoples hearts to himself?

Why does God warn that the Rich are less likely to trust God? Mt.19:23-24, 1 Tim.6, Prov.30:7-9

Would we deny any/all suffering if it makes us better? Then there'd be No discipline or hardships that birth Athletes, Warriors, Artists…!

How much more important is your faiths purity than your life's comfort?

Do you "treasure" your closeness with God more than comfort, ease and pleasure?

In life: Are you on a battleship or a comfort cruise?
