Sermons about Blessings

Introduction: the Trials of Life 1. Why do we experience trials in our lives? 2. Why are there trials in the Christian life? The Blessings of God: amidst the Trials of Life 1. God’s Purpose: our sanctification for His glory (Jm 1:2-4; Eph 1:6; 1Pe 1:3ff) 2. God’s Promise: the crown of life for those who love Him (Jm 1:12; Romans 8:28ff) 3. God’s Provision: the Lord Jesus Christ - His gospel and salvation (Jm 1:13-18; Rom 8) 4. Our Patient-Endurance: we follow Jesus Christ by faith (Jm 1:1-4,12; 5:7-20; Mark 6:45-52)
