Share the Truth in Love

Share this conversation starter with your LDS friend:

I was reading in 1 Corinthians this week and came across the verse: “God will not be tempted beyond what you can bear” (10:13). That sounds like a tremendous amount of pressure during troubling times to think it all depends on me. Then I got to thinking a god who wanted to take you to the brink and crush you would be a cruel god!  

I can think of plenty of times when I have turned internally during trying times only to become more discouraged. It’s clear he doesn’t want us to trust in ourselves. In fact, he says, “If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” (10:12). 

Then I read the whole verse and it changed everything. It starts, “God is faithful.”  He doesn’t change his mind; he is faithful to his promises. I don’t have to wonder where I stand because of his faithful love. God’s faithfulness means he can be trusted.

Those three words: “God is faithful” have changed the way I approach tough times. “God is faithful” has also changed the way I view God. It doesn’t depend on me. God is faithful. It’s not about my strength, but his. Instead of more pressure, it brings relief. 

The next time trouble strikes, hold on to those three powerful words: “God is faithful.”  Then, digging into the Bible, let his faithful promises come alive in completely new ways!
