You may feel at times that being a Christian is like being one of the Baudelaire children in A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Christian life has its share of trials. If fact, as we see in Romans 8, they are an essential component of a life lived under the influence of the Holy Spirit. In other words, it’s not just the least spiritual people who face difficulties, it’s also the most spiritual. Trials are an essential component of the Spirit-filled life, but we can be confident as we face them.
