The Purpose of Trials- like being on a ship.

God has some very helpful purposes for trials in the lives of Christians.  Romans 5:3ff and James 1:2-4, point out that they are for our being made complete, in Christ. This is seen by what we cling to through life.  It is like standing on a ship in calm waters…you will walk around, completely at ease, just as if you were on dry land.  But when the strorms of life come, the seas get rough and one hangs on to a rail or something solid, to stay upright.  God’s purpose is for us to hang on to Christ, and not let go!  Adapted from, "Bring on the Fiery Trials".
