Anyone can be a great person and wonderful Christian when things are going well.  When everyone likes you, you have plenty of money, you are healthy, and life is smooth, it's easy to be positive, faith-filled, and energetic.  But what about when the road is rough?  What will you be like then? What will be revealed about you when the pressure is on?
