Joy in the Midst of Pain – 1 Peter 1:6-9

 

Reason #1 – The grounds for our joy is our ______________________.

 

Reason #2 – God has a __________________ for our temporary pain.

                Purpose #1 – Assuring us of our ______________ of our salvation/inheritance

                                                (proving the genuineness of our faith)

                Purpose #2 – Increasing our ________________ of our salvation.

                                                (purifying the quality of our faith)

Digging Deeper:

  • What is the danger of tying our joy to our circumstances?
  • Why is the joy of the Christian unshakable – even in the midst of pain?
  • How does God use trials in our lives?
  • Do you tend to grow closer to God in times of difficulty?  Why?
  • What (or better, who) is our ultimate inheritance?  (see Rom 8:17, Matt 5:8)

Other Passages to Consider:

Matt 5:10-12; John 16:33; 20:29; Rom 8:16-18; Phil 3:10-11; Jam 1:2-4; 1 Pet 4:12-13)
