Message of the Day: Endure Trials With The Right Attitude!
“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who loved him.” (James 1:12, NKJV)
The church to which James wrote his epistle was composed of rich and poor believers. He assured them that there will be no problem of mixing with each other in genuine fellowship, if all members will realize that through Christ they have equal status before God. Both the poor and the rich have a high position in Christ; the rich as well as the poor must humble themselves in coming to Christ (James 1:7-11).
If we endure trials with the right attitude, we will grow in our knowledge and enjoyment of the life God has given us. When we are experiencing trials, we can easily be tempted to do wrong and then blame God for our failure. We are reminded that God can neither tempt nor be tempted, because he is holy (James 1:12, 13).
