A thought-provoking sermon, titled, ‘A Trial Of Faith’. Using the life of Joseph, he explained that: “There comes a time in our lives where we feel as if the world around us is coming to an end. It is in critical situations like this, that we know who is a man of faith. Just because you are a Christian does not mean that satan cannot attack you because anything close to Jesus receives attack.” The two key lessons he brought out from Joseph’s story were: 1. No matter how long a lie is sustained truth will someday prevail. 2. The position of influence must begin with suffering. He added that: “Joseph did not stay in the dry pit; he moved on! This means, your dry pit, slavery and your prison condition is not your destination! Your destination is the throne!” He concluded by saying: “Through your crises, God is what you need Him to be. He’s ready to go through the dry pit, slavery, prison, fire, the valley of the shadow of death with you. You can draw on God’s resources and become a pearl of usefulness because broken things become useful in the hands of God.” His final advice was on how to handle the trials and tests of faith that come our way: “As a man of vision, patience, perseverance and endurance are your tools. Use them continuously!”
