    Week 19 Adversity

    In many respects, the Christian life is a life of testing. We can expect trials because God, through adverse situations, takes out of our lives things that are not pleasing to Him. But trials should never be viewed as punishment.

    1. Circle key words and phrases in the following Scriptures.

    Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
    JAMES 1:2–4

    Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that
    suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
    ROMANS 5:3–4

    * And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
    ROMANS 8:28

    Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The
    LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised. . . . But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
    JOB 1:21; 23:10

    We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
    2 CORINTHIANS 4:8–9

    Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away,
    yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and
    momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
    2 CORINTHIANS 4:16–17

    2. What do we learn about adversity in (answer briefly):
    James 1:2–4
    Job 1:21 and 23:10
    Romans 5:3–4 2
    Corinthians 4:8–9
    Romans 8:28 2

    I think you meant "Christians lives are very testing for others".

    Ah, you must know some intelligent Christians who don't waste your time unless you bother them first. Like, the ones who treat religion as something personal and don't shove it down your throat?
