Crown of Life

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

There is a war going on right now for your soul, Jesus wants to save it and Satan wants to destroy it. The question is will you persevere under trial? Is your faith strong enough to stand against the schemes of Satan? Or will you continue to fall for his traps of seduction?  Your prize is the crown of life.

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. James 1:13-14

When we fall for sin who do we blame? Do we blame God for our sins? It’s time to take accountability for yourself. Stop blaming God for your failures and downfalls. You have the power thru Jesus Christ to overcome the world, it’s time to stand up and use it

Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. James 15-16

Our imaginations become breeding grounds for sin, if we let our imaginations get the best of us, sin will get the best of us. This is why we need to renew our minds, and set our minds on things from above and not the things of this world. What you think is what you are. What thoughts is your mind full of today?

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. James 1:17-18

There is only one living God, the creator of the heavens and Earth, and your creator. Everything that you have been blessed with in this world, he blessed you with. He has giving us life and he has giving us grace thru Jesus Christ.

Be strong in the Lord, stand the test of sin today and you will inherit the Crown of Life in Jesus Name Amen
