May 12, 2019 “Trials Strengthen Us”

Sermon Summary: What’s it take to be spiritually mature and complete? James 1:2-4 tells us trials and testing mature us. At the beginning of Jesus’ ministry He was tested and tempted by the devil for 40 days. The devil is a real being, with limited power, who tries to exploit our weaknesses and vulnerabilities. He wants to destroy the good work of God in this world. Jesus resisted Satan’s attacks by appealing to the Bible. If you’re facing a trial right now, trust that God knows what He’s doing. Trust Him to reshape and complete you. He has your best in mind.
