April 8, 2018

 

Introduction:

I.  James and his greeting. James 1:1, John 7:5, 1 Cor. 15:7.

 

 

II. When it comes to trials, it's not "if" but "when". James 1:2.  

 

 

III. We are challenged to consider trialss an opportunity for joy. James 1:2.

 

 

IV. Trials can produce perseverance and maturity. James 1:3-4, Hebrews 12:2-3.

Questions for reflection:

 

  • Why is James such a fascinating figure in the New Testament church?
  • Why does God allow trials and suffering into our lives?
  • What would you say are strategies for successfully bearing up under trial?
  • What has God taught or worked in your life through previous trials?
