Don’t Give Up! James 1:12 – 15

James’ prescription for times of difficulty, testing, and trials is seemingly simple: rejoice in the opportunity, realize God is at work, rely on perseverance to have its work of completing God’s plan, recognize that wisdom is not only needed but provided, and remember that you are God’s child with tremendous blessings no matter what else you may have. A person can do all that and still not pass the test successfully. What else could possibly be needed? James tells us: endurance. Those facing trials, tests, and difficulties must never give up! Endurance is vital to the process of facing trials. Listen this morning as James points us to the certain results of our decision regarding endurance.
