Verse 2: “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,”
Testing is an opportunity to experience true joy
We don’t praise God FOR every situation; we praise God IN every situation.
Verse 3: “for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness [endurance].”
Testing produces needed endurance
Verse 4: “And let steadfastness [endurance] have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
