Fire and Faith

What do we do when the heat gets turned up on our faith? Nothing reveals the contents of the heart, its strengths and weakness, like a challenge to your Christian walk. Is God refining you? Pastor Wil explores John 12 and challenges us to ask, “When fire challenges our faith–what is revealed?”

“The question for us as we examine this text together today then becomes, what do we do when the heat gets turned up on our faith? How do we respond when it becomes increasingly uncomfortable and even costly to stand with Christ, to affirm the Gospel, to stand upon the truth of God’s Word? Are we only in it as long as we can see an immediate benefit for us? Or are we followers of Christ because we love our Savior? Do we cower and become quiet and compromise when the heat gets turned up? Or do we lovingly, yet firmly remain planted and immoveable from the truth, from Christ?” Wil Owens, Teaching Pastor
