Don Carson teaches on James 1:12–25, reminding believers to persevere amid suffering and temptation, looking to God’s promises, goodness, and sovereignty to anchor them. Though trials can become temptations to sin, God doesn’t tempt his people; he tests them to strengthen their faith and obedience. Carson highlights the importance of abiding in God’s Word for spiritual growth and freedom, and he encourages Christians to count trials as joy because they lead to deeper spiritual maturity and faith in Christ.
