Your trials will increase as you go deeper with Jesus. But, those who are truly hungry for Jesus will endure the tests of suffering, knowing that they purify the soul and prepare the child of God to enter heaven. The saint who thus meekly trusts Christ is an honor to Jesus. Is this work of grace evident in your soul? Have you renounced sin because you hate it? Has your former love for sin been replaced with a burning desire for souls to be pulled out of the fire? And would those who hear what you say and watch what you do agree with that assessment?
