Today in church was about "camouflaged faith" with a lot of references to Joseph and his brothers. About private, public and core convictions and changes in how we should respond to Jesus.
The pastor gave a reference to boats and how when building them and once completed you have to test it out in the ocean to see if it will sustain all the waves, winds and storms. If the boat comes back a wreck and into pieces with many problems...it wasn't the ocean that did the damage, it was the flaws within the boat that wasn't prepared for the ocean. The ocean only revealed that the boat was not worthy and that is what allows it to be repaired.
