Personal testimonies from real Christians all over the world.
“As a Christian, I used to feel that temptation was something that I didn’t want to have at all in my life. I guess I subconsciously wanted to be free from it. I wanted to ‘live above it.’ And of course that didn’t happen. But a verse that changed my whole outlook was 1 Peter 1:7, ‘… that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.’
Now I experience that being tempted is the gateway to obtaining something more valuable than anything. It’s not just my faith that has value, it’s a proven faith that is so rare and precious! I don’t dread or resent temptation at all any more. It’s a golden chance to experience something more precious than gold: a proven faith!” Lars (USA) #ActiveChristianity
