    I really Live this : Cause we are all tempted and I feel reading about this helps us to stay strong in the Lord !!!
  • MockingBird on James 1:12
    For every transgression and disobedience there is a just recompence of reward : I will be forgiven and cleansed when I confess that sin : at the same time I will also reap a just recompence of reward. David the king faced it : He was forgiven for killing Uriah the Hittite at the same time the sword was on his house hold till the day he died !!!! I must be very wise to not yield to any temptation !!!!

  • Vince on James 1:12
    KJV says when we are "tried", and bear up under temptation we are blessed and will receive a crown. Some other versions leave an illusion of works to be "approved" to receive a crown. Tried and true KJV is the right interpretation.
  • Toni on James 1:12
    The definition of endure is: "to last,to remain firm as under trial or suffering; to suffer patiently or without yielding; to bear up under adversity, to hold out." God is promising those who do these things and stand firm during temptation -the trials and tests, He will bless them. God's promises are all faithful and true. We can hold Him to His Word. If we hold out and endure, we will receive eternal life. "But he that endures unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Matt 24:13).
  • Cheryl. C. on James 1:12
    Every temptation last 45 seconds !!!! It is not sin to be tempted : It is sin to go with it. God has made a way of escape through His Word.
