The Testing of Your Faith – James 1:1-8
The Christian life is a marathon filled with obstacles and God calls us to persevere with joy because He is working through those difficulties to mature us for our good. In this sermon pastor David reminds us that God knows what He’s doing and He can be trusted in the midst of every trial.
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion: 2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.(James 1:1-8)
