Adult Bible Study
Facilitated by Scott Adamavage
Join us for James MacDonald’s study, When Life Is Hard, Turning Your Trials to Gold, beginning Monday evening, February 4, 2013, at 6:30 pm and continuing every other Monday for 5 more sessions.
To be refined, gold must be melted so that impurities can rise to the surface and be removed. God uses a similar method to purify believers who submit to His refining work in their lives. And it all starts in the crucible of suffering.
Born from James MacDonald’s personal experience with cancer, When Life Is Hard examines suffering from a biblical perspective. This six-session study is anchored in the scriptural truth that God disciplines all of His children, using trials to train you for your good and for His purposes. The author brings clarity to what trials are, how they differ from the consequences of sin, and why God allows trials in your life. You will discover principles for responding to trials in a way that submits to God’s work in your life and seeks to glorify Him. You will also learn how to tap into the spiritual resources God provides to help you face your trials.
If you are a child of God, you can be sure that trials are coming your way. But your hardships are raw materials in the hands of a mighty God who wants to work in your life for your good. You can trust Him to burn away the impurities and to bring you forth as gold.
