“You know that you learn to endure by having your faith tested”

Audio Icon   James 1:3



In this episode the KC gang learns that God can work through unexpected failures and frustrations.

In the story from Acts 16:16-40, God rescued Paul and Silas from jail. But that wasn’t the last time Paul went to jail for preaching the gospel. Paul lived in a Roman prison for many years. His dark prison was sunk about 12 feet underground and smelled horrible. He might have had some straw to use as a bed. Some of the guards were cruel.

Paul’s life in prison was very difficult. But this is where he wrote three great letters to the churches of Ephesus, Colosse, and Philippi, as well as a personal letter to his friend Philemon. Today, these letters bless us as the Bible books of Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians and Philemon. God used Paul during his tough times to change people’s lives and give hope to other people who hurt. God is there in hard times. Nothing can separate you from the love of God.

Want to dig deeper and learn more about God’s work in in hardship? Check out Romans 8:38-39, Philippians 1:6, and Romans 5:3-5.


Do some baking! Follow a recipe to make some cupcakes or cookies.

Imagine that you were some of the ingredients. If you were the flour, would you like being mixed with goopy eggs? If you were the eggs or butter, would you like being beaten in a mixer? Would you like being shoved in a hot oven? We are like ingredients. God has a recipe to make us into something greater. But we don’t always understand how all the unpleasant parts are part of the plan. We have to trust when we are being “mixed” and “beaten” and “baked” that we are being made into something better and that God knows what he is doing. When your treats are done, enjoy how all the ingredients came together. Then share them with a friend and tell them about how you made them.
