The trials we endure whisper to us, \\\"It won\\\'t always be like this.\\\" This message was given by Pastor Steve DeWitt as part of the Exiles sermon series at the Crown Point campus and streamed to the Cedar Lake and Hobart/Portage campuses.
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 1 Peter 4:12 — 1 Peter 4:16 ESV
