Welcome to our new journey through the epistle of James! He challenges us today to not quit! To not have such a low tolerance for pain. Quitting stops God’s work of transforming you. No pain no gain! God will test our faith to see if it's genuine. Quitting will only bring into question the validity of our faith.
Pray unceasingly. Read & study your Bible. Go to church regularly. Tell others about Christ. Keep on through devastating loss and hardship! Never quit before God completes His work. James says “let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
Let us endure affliction, so that God might show us the quality of our faith, that we would find that we indeed have faith that saves.
Raise your goblet TO THE PAIN! Let us drink deep and let it have it’s full effect on us! For Christ through the Holy Spirit is sanctifying us for eternity!
Don’t quit! Never quit! Hang in there, there’s no where else to go.
