Dear Church Family and Friends,
I am humbled and honored to share another message with you today. I pray that all has gone well for you this week with God’s blessings. As seen on the news, there have been many tribulations around the world this week such as mass shooting, flood disaster, severe weather, war, and so forth. Yet, we have been very blessed by God that these things have not hit this area. May we continue to be blessed by Him and protected by Him.
I don’t know what the percentage is, but most of us probably do get hit by trials and tribulations between the past and the present in a personal level. Whether it is a physical illness, a financial difficulty, a family struggle, a spiritual struggle, how is our attitude when we face trials and tribulations? If we are not prepared with the proper attitude now, how will we handle the more severe trials and tribulations, such as “The Mark of the Beast”, when they arrive?
According to James, “A man who endures trials is blessed, because when he passes the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.” [James 1:12]
What a promise!!
In this sermon of message and songs, may we contemplate how we have responded when faced with trials and tribulations, and on how God wants us to respond according to His will. May the Holy Spirit give us understanding and guide us on this subject.
