The Scriptures clearly explain that believers should expect to endure trials in their lives. Both New and Old Testament writings offer hope and promises of victory during hardship, but many believers lack the understanding of Scripture and spiritual maturity to effectively persevere through, much less learn from, difficult circumstances. Author and minister Greg Hinnant teaches how we can become like refined gold by striving to overcome our trials, a teaching based on Revelation 3: 18: "Buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich."
