Our reading today is from James 1:12.
“For once his testing is complete he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to all who love him.”
During this time or period the church,or Christianity was under persecution of suffering,many believers lost there lives during the persecution error.This message was dressed direct to the saints who were from the Christians Jewish living in Italy,as they were going through,sufferings,troubles,death following them.
Brother James had to write them this great message that there reward if you can go through this and to eternity,our God promised us great blessings.
James knew and understood that troubles or persecution is not any easy walk,that is the reason for him encouraging them,or each other,there were twelve tribes who were living in Rome,in verse 2 he says,”My brethren,count it all joy when ye fall into temptations;
Every believer kn ow this that there is our crown of life that is our reward from God the father,to all saints don’t give up.
Be encouraged with this word.
In his grace.
