Larry’s Sermon title for today is:

  “Victory in the Midst of Adversity” (James 1:12-15)


According to James, it is the “testing of your faith that produces steadfastness” (James 1:3).   The inspired writer also tells us to “count it all joy…when you meet trials of various kinds” (James 1:2).   The end result is believers are made “perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” (James 1:4).  Some of the ‘testing’ comes in the form of various “temptations” that are “common to man” (I Cor. 10:13).  The Greek word peirasmos is translated as “trial, test, and temptation” in various passages and the relationship between ‘testing’ and ‘temptation’ is that both aspects are related to the believers stance and faithfulness to overcome whatever the circumstances or situation may be.  

James also diagrams the process of how our thoughts in various areas of temptation leads down the pathway of sin which produces the final result of “death” (James 1:14, 15).  It is God’s will that His people would endure the trials and temptations through “faithfulness unto death” (Rev. 2:10) in order to receive the “crown of life”—forever in God’s presence.  It is our continual, daily trust in God that brings the ultimate victory into our lives.
