Count it pure joy in times of trial, testing and temptation??? That's CRAZY, right? No so fast, partner! This whole plan of salvation us upside down to this world; God dying for our sins? Why not joy in times of trouble! God is for us and with us! PTL!!

Wisdom! The Lord has it and He wants you to get it from Him! We need to pursue the Lord and His wisdom with a single minded focus in order to glorify God by being "a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ".

These verses follow teaching on testing and trials. Is it possible that testing and trials could be considered good and perfect gifts from the Father of the heavenly lights? It all depends if you're walking with Him or away from Him.

This sermon is from James 1:26-27 and 2:14-26 as they both seem to be talking to the same topic of deeds and how those deeds proceed from true faith.

Why is showing preference to the rich a sin? And, is it really as much of a sin as murder or adultery?
