Do you remember how, in school, you would listen while the teacher explained something, then you would get sent home with HOMEWORK to practice and perfect your skill?

Serving God is the same way. The Bible is full of instruction. Then, God sends trials and tribulations so that you can practice and perfect doing the things He has told you to do.

If there were no trials and tribulations, you would get no practice. Without practice, you would never make the transition from being a ‘hearer of the word’ to being a ‘doer of the word’.
