Trust the one who passed the greatest test of all


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times Human beings have no need to test God, especially if they place their trust in Him by accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, as as their Lord and Savior. By trusting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we are saved from our sins and given a new lease on life, both our earthly one, and our eternal one. We gain that because Christ has faced the ultimate test of death itself and triumphed over it and having triumphed over it now extends to all who will believe on Him the gift of forgiveness of sins. That forgiveness is what makes the difference between an eternity of spiritual life and an eternity of spiritual death. In obedience to His Father’s will, Christ has triumphed over death, hell and the grave and through Him we can all share in that triumph. Given this triumph, there is no way human beings can truly test our Creator without those testing Him coming up short and revealing their own failings. No, the way to respond to the challenges of life is not by demanding that God pass some test of our devising, but instead placing our trust in His Son and letting Him help us face and overcome the tests life throws at us. When we do that, we’ll see that God has and always will come through with flying colors for those who place their trust in His Son and blesses them all the days of their lives and beyond.
