1 Peter 1:7 NASB "so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which perishes though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;"It was finally time to enter the smoke house and test our knowledge of what we had learned! Today's verse speaks about testing by fire to see and prove if our faith brings God the praise, glory and honor! For weeks we sat in the classroom, learning about fire, and how to extinguish it. Now it was time to put into practice what we had learned. As I entered the smoke house (the training building where there was actual fire and smoke) I had to prove to our instructors that I had learned what they taught! While the heat was intense, the smoke blinding, we made it to find the victim and carry him out. In life, we will have moments when our faith will be tested. Tested to see if we have learned from those who have shared the Gospel, tested to see if we can live what we read in His Word, and trust me, others will be watching and judging us so let's get it right and bring God the glory and praise! peace, tom
