Genesis 22 - Tests




One of the worst parts of school are the tests. The hardest test to pass is the final exam. In Genesis 22 Abraham faces his final exam in the school of faith. Just like Abraham, God is growing our faith and testing us to bring us to maturity. In this chapter we learn how to prepare for the tests and trials of faith we will have in our life and how to pass with flying colors.

1 Peter 3:13-17 - How Do I Endure Unjust Suffering?




People can be downright evil. Either for reasons unknown to us, or because of our faith in Christ, some people enjoy doing evil toward us. They posture themselves as our enemy. How should we treat them? How do we try and stop their hate-filled words and actions? How do we cope with the pressure when the suffering doesn't stop? These are some of the important questions we answer in our study.
