Our suffering has purpose in the eyes of God, for our good and his glory. This message was given by Pastor Ray Dix at Bethel Gary as part of the Exiles teaching series.
6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith--more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire--may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:6 — 1 Peter 1:7 ESV
