What is Your Training?

When entering the military, you are immediately administered a skills test to determine what type of job you would be best for you, such as armory, clerical or medical. The next step is sending you to a specific department to be trained. Once you have been trained, they send you out to perform that particular job. In a similar way, God appoints each one of us as Christians to do a specific job in the kingdom. 1Peter 4:12 tells us “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.” Our struggles in life are our trainings that presents opportunities for us to help others who face similar battles. For example, if you have never faced any type of abuse, you can’t teach an abused person how to overcome the spiritual, mental and emotional issues that such a condition produces. It tells us in Psalm 66:10 each one’s work will become manifest, for the day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. We have all been through something (fire) in life that will allow us to help someone else get through it. This leaves the question, what have you been trained for?
