We have been taking an extended look at the instruction from James in James 1 to, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.”
Our goal as believers is to know God; not to merely gain information about Him, however we have all met people with some pretty strange ideas that they claim have come out of their experience of God. We want to know the one true God as He is, as He has revealed Himself, not as we imagine or presume Him to be.
The text we are looking at now in James reveals an important truth about God that is vital for us to know in the face of hardship and/or trials of faith. Our God is immutable, He does not change — not ever, not even a little bit. That is good news indeed! I hope I’ll see you this Sunday morning.
