Take seriously the Relationship with God
1. Don’t presume BLESSINGS are APPROVAL
2. Don’t presume SINS are TOLERATED
3. Don’t presume TESTING THE LORD is ALLOWED
4. Don’t presume STANDING without DOING
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
Romans 5:3-4 (NIV)
