QUALIFYING FOR PROMOTION: Faith, the Next Level, pt. 9
Christian singer and songwriter, Lincoln Brewster, who provides an object lesson for this teaching, is one of the best modern day examples of God's method of qualifying His people for promotion. A former lead guitarist for secular artist, Steve Perry (formerly of the rock group, Journey), Brewster had to undergo a wilderness pilgrimage, so to speak, after getting saved before God could use him in the way he's being used today. The Scriptures tell us that we should consider it all joy when we encounter similar kinds of various trials, because the testing of our faith produces endurance (James 1:2-4). But many people refuse to submit to God's refining process, not understanding that He has in mind to promote those who withstand that process so He can use them on a larger scale. This teaching may answer some questions and produce some "aha" moments for people who have questioned why things have happened the way they have.
