How a Growing Passion for God Changes How We Handle Trials


“…those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” (Romans 8:30) Perhaps you have heard the expression, “God doesn’t call the qualified; He qualifies the called.” It likely had its birth in this phrase from Romans 8:30. In Christ we are qualified. We are qualified to grow under pressure. We are qualified to excel when facing enormous challenges. We are qualified to love when dealing with the difficult to love. We are qualified to forgive when enduring what would otherwise be unforgivable. We are qualified to lead when all seems lost. So why do so many of us feel unqualified? And what can we do about it? Finding answers to these questions and changing how we deal with the tough stuff of life will be the focus of our October sermon series, Qualified. Through examining how God worked in the lives of some people who were facing enormous difficulties, we will grow in confidence when it comes to facing our own challenges.
