Pure Joy

Pure Joy

James 1:1-18 Pure Joy.

We all face trials of various kinds. Trials are by their very nature challenging and unpleasant. What then are we to make of James’s instruction to,

Consider it pure joy … whenever you face trials of many kinds?

How can trials, which invariably make us unhappy, actually be considered “pure joy”? What does James mean by joy? And what is the relationship between trials and joy?

James also hits some of the major topics which confront us all day to day, including; temptation, perseverance, maturity, completeness, and wisdom. Join us as we jump into James’ letter and see the godly wisdom and challenges he provides for Christians living in our circumstances.
