卒業前の最後の訓練は“THE CRUCIBLE”と言うテストです。
これは海兵隊の新人を肉体的・精神的・道徳的に訓練する54時間の非情に厳しいテストです。 新人は20㎏の荷物を背負いながら、77㎞を歩かなければなりません。その間、彼は2回の食事と6時間の睡眠だけが許されます。
神様がクリスチャンを“THE CRUCIBLE”と同じような試練に合わせる時があります。




そして“THE CRUCIBLE”のような信仰生活のテストを受ける時、主の約束を思い出しましょう。



Since February, my grandson, Nathan, has undergone training at Parris Island, a famous training facility. He will graduate on Friday (5/4).

Before graduation, there is a test called “The Crucible.” This is a 54-hour severe test to train the recruit physically, mentally, and morally. The recruit must march 48 miles carrying 45 pounds of gear. During the test, he is allowed only two meals and six hours of sleep.

There are times when God causes Christians to meet trials like “The Crucible.” The purpose of the Marine recruits’ test is to produce soldiers who have endurance. The purpose of the Christian’s trial is the same.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. (James 1:2-3)

When patience is formed, it produces this result.
Tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope. (Romans 5:3-4)

If we endure the trial, there is this result too.
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. (First Peter 4:12-13)

And when we are undergoing a trial like “The Crucible” in our Christian life, let’s remember the promise of the Lord.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
(First Corinthians 10:13)
