On Episode 103 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss what James meant when he said to “count it all joy” even in the midst of trials. Nobody wants to face hard times, but as believers that is often when we experience the most growth!
“‘Count it all joy’ is a call to understand suffering from the vantage point of confidence in God’s sovereignty. What follows requires careful thinking from a theological perspective.” – Reformation Study Bible Note
“Faith is as vital to salvation as the heart is to the body. By faith God is greatly glorified and by faith Satan is greatly annoyed” -Charles Spurgeon
“I strive for the Scriptures to determine what matters to me in every season. As far as I can see it boils down to loving God and loving my neighbor. If something in my life is pulling me away from loving God and loving my neighbor that prompts me to prayerfully reevaluate, seek the wisdom of the Word, welcome the counsel of older wisdom, and potentially change my ways or walk in repentance.” -Hunter Beless
