Written to strengthen Christians who are discouraged, then and now, the book of James says:

  • “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” 1:2-4
  • “Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” 5:7-8
  • “You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord-that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.” 5:11b
  • “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” 5:13-15a

May we continue to find hope in Christ Jesus and in the reading of his Word.
