How Do I Live by Faith? A Study of James I: Trials and Temptations

October 15, 2018

Pastor Paul Sausser

James 1:12-18

God uses trials and suffering in our life to refine us like fire purifies gold. This is a hard experience for us, but the results of trials are growth in this life and preparation for the life to come in eternity. Humanity, however, likes to short circuit God’s process so we trade in long term growth and maturity for short term pleasure. The end results of giving in to temptation is our own destruction.
