Let nothing move you.

American Underdog recounts the true story of Kurt and Brenda Warner through Kurt’s early football career. Kurt and Brenda’s personal stories are full of unexpected twists and turns that test their strength, their relationship, and their faith. In James, we’re told to consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds (v. 2). It’s hard to feel it in the moment, but these trials produce perseverance and make us mature and complete. It’s counterintuitive, but when you trust God through your trials, he’ll reveal his faithfulness.

Other texts in this message: 1 Corinthians 15:58, 1 Peter 4:12
