The True Test of Faith

James 1:1-18            April 3, 2016          Link for audio/video/manuscript

The true test of faith is the test of whether we will joyfully embrace all of the trials, struggles and adversities that God brings/sends/allows into our lives as good gifts from God - a God who is good, unchanging, and sovereign over all things - in order to give stability to our faith and to build up faith so might live out a living faith, through the in-working of God’s Spirit, which is the perfecting work of God within us, which will not only bless us with His power, presence and preeminence as we go through trials, struggles and adversities - but will also reward us with the crown of life in heaven.
