Message of the Day: Face The Trials of Life With Joy!

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” (James 1:2-3 NKJV)

James’ readers are scattered over the area of the early church’s expansion (1:1), but no matter where they live, they share the same responsibilities as Christians everywhere. One of these responsibilities requires them to do something that by nature is very difficult, namely, face the trials of life with joy. This joy comes through the knowledge that trials help believers to develop endurance and so strengthen their Christian character. (1:2-4)

We are admonished to regard every trial as an occasion to rejoice; a matter which should afford us happiness. We are not to consider it as a punishment, a curse, or a calamity, but as a fit subject of celebration. We were to count it a matter of joy that our faith is subjected to anything that tests it. It is well for us to have the reality of our faith tested, in whatever way it may be done.

Patience is one of the fruits of trials, and the blessing of patience is worth the trial which it may cost to procure it.
