Enduring Trials

    Fairview Baptist Church welcomed Dr. Dave Douglass and music by Grace and Truth from Hyles-Anderson college this evening. What a blessed evening hearing Grace and Truth sing to worship the Lord. We are thankful for their visit and Dr. Douglas'  message of enduring and the consequences of sin.

    What a selfish thing to purposefully sin without thinking of the consequences in our lives and the lives of others.  We must consider the consequences and always consider God's goodness and love. We must trust God that He is infinitely wise and that He is in control!  Consider God's goodness and don't cave in to internal temptations. To endure temptations we must consider the consequences, consider His goodness and finally, consider the divine nature that lives within. The Holy Spirit of our infinite God lives within all of us right now. Be patient during the trials, pray during the trials and don't waste trials. Learn something and gain wisdom from them.
