A Christian’s Credentials

In this passage, Paul is emphasizing that, while his readers may see the boasting and outward wealth of the false prophets as signs of genuine faith, all the trials and challenges he has faced is actually a more accurate sign that he is a true follower of Christ. Jesus builds our faith through challenges and obstacles, so that we grow stronger in the faith. Believing in Christ takes perseverance and faith, as we run this marathon and finish the race in Christ. Hardship and trials are a good indication that we are true believers and are a better point of reference than the “earthly blessings” promoted by prosperity teachers.
