SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/17- “Enduring Patiently Gets The Ultimate Reward!” (James 1:12)
Premise Question: What, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is our most difficult task, how do we fulfill said task and what is our reward for doing so?
“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12 NLT)
Papa God thoroughly enjoys lavishing gifts upon His dearly beloved children; especially those who’ve persevered under great duress, provocation and enticement. For eventually, if they refuse to give up, during the crucial verification process, by continuing to love and rely on Papa God no matter what, they will have bestowed upon them the highest honor, which is His most valued and promised reward, of an eternal life, filled with perfect peace, constant refreshing and everlasting joy. (James 1:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The most difficult thing, for us to do, is to endure patiently, but we’ve got to, by being brave, trusting and relying fully on Papa God, full of His courage, and calmly waiting it out, and that, without a lot of complaining, which includes moaning and groaning, grumbling and grousing. For after we get through all the hardships and multiple kinds of enticing allurements, we will fully experience and thoroughly enjoy our promised reward! The difficult and most arduous process, of verification, is extremely crucial, as it is most important to our growth and maturity, as believers. For eventually, when we’ve stood the test, endured every trial, trouble, provocation and multiple temptations; our faith walk will be made much stronger and we will be ready for anything, for we will be absolutely complete and lack nothing.
(James 1:2-4) The promised reward is so worth the wait of us having to endure patiently! Blessings…
