Did you know that James, the brother of Jesus, had to resolve a personal crisis of faith? James had unprecedented access to the Messiah; however, he failed to trust and believe in his brother, his mother and his God. This passionate message from Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. chronicles James’ journey from skeptic to active ministry participant. Like James, we can “count it all joy” when we endure a myriad of tests. As we increasingly develop a spiritual perspective, we must hold on to the sure persuasion that our tests produce perseverance and righteousness.
