eBook: The Value of Trials

2.99

Suffering is so universally staggering in its magnitude, the world so unjust, so unsatisfying, life so short and time so fleeting, it seems as if this earthly life was never intended by God to be a place where human happiness could find its full fruition; but a place where Christ-imparted character can, by suffering and trial, be matured and sweetened and so prepared for the unending expansion of the heavenly life. Hence there must be a divine purpose and necessity for pain and trial.

The Bible teaches that trials are a part of God’s plan for the Christian, “That no man should be moved by these afflictions; for yourselves know that we are appointed thereto.” 1 Thess. 3:3. “For even hereunto were ye called; because Christ also suffered for us leaving us an example that we should follow in his steps.”

In this book, Mrs. Elliot shares the wisdom gained through over 40 years’ experience in writing about the value of trials, that instead of seeking to escape them, we should embrace them. Shifting the blame to others is an easy way out, and accusing the devil has no benefit. Instead, our biggest imperative is to learn to discern the Father’s hand in our lives. In Mrs. Elliott’s words, “We cannot impart what we have not received.”
