The Testing of Your Faith

Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:1 - [fn]James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes who are [fn]dispersed abroad: Greetings
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:2 - Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you encounter various [fn]trials
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:3 - knowing that the testing of your faith produces [fn]endurance
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:4 - And let [fn]endurance have its perfect [fn]result, so that you may be [fn]perfect and complete, lacking in nothing
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:5 - But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [fn]without reproach, and it will be given to him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:6 - But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:7 - For that person ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:8 - being a [fn]double-minded man, unstable in all his ways
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:9 - Now the brother or sister of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:10 - but the rich person is to glory in his [fn]humiliation, because like [fn]flowering grass he will pass away
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:11 - For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so also the rich person, in the midst of his pursuits, will die out
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:12 - Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has [fn]been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:13 - No one is to say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted [fn]by God”; for God cannot be tempted [fn]by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:14 - But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:15 - Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it has run its course, brings forth death
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:16 - Do not be [fn]deceived, my beloved brothers and sisters.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:17 - Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or [fn]shifting shadow
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:18 - In the exercise of His will He gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would be [fn]a kind of first fruits [fn]among His creatures
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:19 - [fn]You know this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Now everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:20 - for a man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness of God
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:21 - Therefore, ridding yourselves of all filthiness and all [fn]that remains of wickedness, in [fn]humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:22 - But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not just hearers who deceive themselves
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:23 - For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his [fn]natural face in a mirror
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:24 - for once he has looked at himself and gone away, [fn]he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:25 - But one who has looked intently at the perfect law, the law of freedom, and has continued in it, not having become a forgetful hearer but [fn]an active doer, this person will be blessed in [fn]what he does
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:26 - If anyone thinks himself to be religious, yet does not [fn]bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this person’s religion is worthless
Unchecked Copy BoxJas 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained [fn]by the world
