Perfecting Your Faith in an Imperfect World
Pastor Aaron Cordeiro
"Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God." (Job 1:22)
Start building a full MEASURE of TRUST in God.
"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He will do it." (Ps. 37:3, 5)
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6)
PERFECTING OUR FAITH
- Be content with the OBSCURITIES of your FAITH.
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for." (Heb. 11:1-2)
Build TRUST by staying close to HOME.
"While His parents returned home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it." (Luke 2:43)
OUTLAST the TOUGH times.
"We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord's dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful." (James 5:11)
"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith - of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire - may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." (1 Pet. 1:6-7)
