Pass or Fail
Saturday our men’s prayer had what one might call question and answer day. We had many good question and answers, but there was one question that stood out.
Why do I fail so many of God’s test?
I being the leader of failure the past week with a laptop that is sick and in a coma. Trapped inside that laptop is all the stuff I have been working on, then there is all that stuff I have out there in cyber-space I need to be working on, and at work ##@#/ ##**/ and *&*@@#!
I am the King of Failure!
NIV James 1:2-4
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trails of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
This was not the answer we were, I was, looking for. We, I, have heard many a sermon on this passage of Scripture and none was filling the void in the question. No religiousestly and christaneeze could answer this big hole in that question.
Why do I Fail God’s test?
So we prayed!
NIV Mark 9: 23-24
“If you can?” said Jesus, “Everything is possible for him who believes!”
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help my unbelief!”
Without testing there is no belief.
God’s testing is not a pass or fail test,
the Test is to help us believe.
So we prayed!
