Chapter 6

Primed for Ignition

One of the reasons God allows trials in our lives is for our own growth so that we can help others in their greatest times of need. This is also how God allows us to know Him—living for His purposes to seek and save the lost, and moving everyone, every day, closer to Jesus.

Chapter 8

Living for God’s Purpose

Millions of Christians misinterpret Romans 8:28 (NLT) and believe it means that everything will work for our good—and that nothing bad will ever happen to us. When bad things happen, they lose their faith in God. But this verse actually means that when we live for God’s purposes, not ours, “all things work together for good.” The good that God orchestrates is always redemptive, bringing more people to Him!

Life Application
