Rising to the Occasion

Sometimes, God gives us challenges in our lives and every time He does, it gives us the chance to "rise to the occasion." To show Christ in our lives. Can we do anything for our salvation? No. But we can please God by doing what He has told us to do... and if we do them, we are rising to the occasion.

There's that little saying "W.W.J.D?" That is what we should think when trials come in our lives, what would Jesus do?

Why does God give us trials, you ask? Well, maybe it is for this very reason! To see if we will "rise to the occasion," so people would see Christ through us, in these trials!
We will never really know why God does everything that He does, but that's just need to live by faith!

All for the glory of God,

P.S. Kole will post later.

"Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."
James 1:1-4
