Contentment, Part 2

The Puritan Richard Sibbes says this about God’s work in the believers heart to wean it from the world, “Men cherish young plants at first, and fence them about to keep them from hurt, but when they are grown, they remove them, and then leave them to the wind and weather, so God besets His children first with props of inward comforts, but afterwards exposes them to storms and winds, because they are better able to bear it. Therefore let no man think himself the better because he is free from troubles. It is because God sees him not fit to bear greater.” In struggle and trial have you ever asked the question why? Have you ever wondered if trial may be one of the most pungent platforms for you as a believer to preach the gospel? Would you believe that the greatest threat to your holiness isn’t trial, but the every day things of life? Listen along and seek to realign your heart to find contentment in Christ alone!
