1-12 Application for Apr 9-10, 2016 :: James 1:2-3

===

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

James 1:2-3

This is a truth that is present in many places in the Bible, and it’s an idea we’re not really fond of.

First it says “when”, not “if” You will meet trials – of more than one kind. And when you do, your response should not be to complain, or shake your fist, or say it’s unjust, but to count it as joy.

But there is good news. There is a positive result – when your faith is tested, and you trust God to supply your needs or get you through it, there will be more steadfastness in your life.

And then you should thank God. And rejoice.
