Written by the Holy Spirit, 12 Sept 2013
We have this inheritance
Incorruptible and undefiled
To which God
Has begotten us
Through our faith in Jesus Christ.
Though now, for a little while,
You’ve been grieved
Through various trials
Know that your faith is being tested-
Refined through fire.
No matter how the enemy comes
To try to kill, steal and destroy-
Make sure of one thing through it all-
That you hold onto your joy
When the fire burns hottest,
When the trials come thick and fast,
The joy of the Lord will be your strength
And soon it will be past.
But our living hope in Christ remains
For we will receive our faith’s end –
With joy unspeakable-
The salvation of our souls
To this we must contend.
Amen and amen.
1 Peter 1:3-9
