James 1:12-18

12-Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD hath promised to them that love him.

13- Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14- But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15- Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

16- Do not err, my beloved brethren.

17- Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18- Of his own will begat he us with the of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

I came across this passage during sunday school yesterday, and it really hit home.


  1. Hey Brother! Sorry I'm behind on checking your post. I've been in Africa and just got back. It was great. I hope to post about it later this week. Your posts were a blessing and encouragement, well except for the running. LOL! Looks like good shootin' though! Have a great day in the LORD! :-)

  2. I'm glad to hear you had a good trip. I look forward to reading it!
