1 Peter 1:7 (ESV) "so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ."I had to pull the car over, I couldn't "fake" it any longer! While driving to church one Sunday, my wife and I had a very bad argument, so much so that we were at odds! We had a choice that day, we could go to church and "fake it" that things were ok or we could be honest with ourselves and others that things were not ok! Today's verse speaks about the genuineness of our faith and when tested like gold through fire, it may be found in the praise and glory of the revelation of Jesus Christ. In life, we will have those moments when we need to be real, that our faith needs to be genuine and not fake that things are ok. It's ok to admit that we need help, I needed to admit that my anger had become a serious problem in our relationship and I needed to be truthful about getting help, thank God I did! Don't let things keep us from being real about our relationship with Jesus Christ and each other. Admit we need help and seek Him above all! peace, tom
