MEMORY VERSE: “Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.” 1 Peter 4:16

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Peter 4:12-19

[12]Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

[13]But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

[14]If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

[15]But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.

[16]Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

[17]For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

[18]And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

[19]Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

INTRODUCTION:

A trial is an examination or a test which challenges our endurance and patience. It is part and parcel of human life. The overall objective of a trial is to mould us, to produce in us a character or attitude or a certain pattern of living after undergoing the trial. In the Christian life, trials produce a Godly character which in the end produce endurance, meekness and long-suffering (Rom. 5:3-5). As we learn about trials of faith in this lesson, we earnestly pray that we will be able to keep our faith firm in the face of any opposition or hardship

LESSON OUTLINES:

1. DESCRIPTION AND INSTANCES OF TRIALS OF FAITH

2. THE CORRECT ATTITUDE TO TRIALS

DESCRIPTION AND INSTANCES OF TRIALS OF FAITH

The basic teaching of Jesus on trials is found in Matthew 10:38. Here, the mark of a true child of God is his readiness to take his cross and follow Jesus. The ‘cross’ is not a pleasant thing. In Matthew 11:29-30, it is referred to as Christ’s yoke and burden. There is blessed assurance even while taking the cross and the yoke. (Matt. 11:30). Thus, following Jesus involves setting ones mind on the expectation of trials and this hope should serve as a cushion or shock-absorber of the soul (1 Peter 2:21).

v. When our faith is tried, it does not mean that we have committed a sin, that we have committed a sin, Jesus did not commit any sin but still he had to undergo the most severe trial (1 Peter 2:22-23). Jesus was in all points tempted and tried, yet he did not commit any sin (Heb.4:15). Apart from this, if you are a believer, you must receive the second baptism different from water baptism. It is the baptism into the suffering of Jesus Christ (Rom.6:3).

Some instances of trials in the Bible include that of Abraham, whose faith was tried by God to sacrifice his only son, Isaac (Gen.22:1-2, 12, 16; Heb.11:17). Abraham passed the test. Also, Job, an upright and righteous servant of God was tested with misfortunes and diseases by Satan, in order that he would deny God and renounce his faith. Job passed the test (Job.1:8-12; 19-20; Job:42:12) and God multiplied his blessings at the end. The disciples of Jesus (John 21:3) failed the test. Paul also had his share of trials during his missionary journeys (2 Cor. 4:8-10). Steven even died for his faith (Acts 6:8, 10; Acts 7:58-59)

THE CORRECT ATTITUDE TO TRIALS

Believers should see trials as opportunities for promotion (Rom.8:18). When you are tried, God wants to take you higher. If you can overcome, you will be valued greater by the host of heaven (Job 42:12). Endure, be patient and ask God to take you through the trials (James 1:2-4). Jesus will give you the power to sail through (Phil. 4:13).

Study the Bible to know the will of God for you in that situation (Rom.12:2). Listen to the voice of the Lord (Isa.30:21). He will speak to you in that condition of yours and will not leave you alone (Matt. 28:20b; Isa.41:10). You can share your experience with the children of God and your brethren in the faith. Do not give up, have a firm faith that Jesus will see you through (Acts 14:22)

To rejoice at Thy birth.

Both young and old will sing Thy song,

Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
