Main point summary
Endurance amidst trials equals eternal rewards. Though God allows temptation, He never tempts, but through our endurance amidst temptations and trials, we receive eternal blessings, which is ultimately knowing our Father more intimately. Through Christ's strength, we can endure trials and advance God's kingdom as warriors of Truth. Our adversary, the Devil, seeks whom he may devour. Do not be deceived. Pray continually. Discern clearly based on God's Word. We are chosen by God's grace, not by our works. James writes to the Jewish Christians of the Dispersion and to us. We are the fruits of God's grace. Let us model God's grace to others in our generation.

NT
James 1:12-18
esv
nasb
u Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial,
a Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial;
for when he has stood the test
for once he has 1 been approved,
he will receive v the crown of life,
he will receive b the crown of life
w which God has promised to those who love him.
which the Lord c has promised to those who d love Him.
progression
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,”
Let no one say when he is tempted, “ a I am being tempted 1 by God”;
for God cannot be tempted with evil,
for God cannot be tempted 2 by evil,
and he himself tempts no one.
and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
series
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
Then desire x when it has conceived gives birth to sin,
Then a when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin;
and y sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
and when b sin 1 is accomplished, it brings forth death.
Do not be deceived,
a Do not be 1 deceived,
my beloved brothers.
b my beloved brethren.
z Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is a from above,
coming down from a the Father of lights
coming down from b the Father of lights,
b with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 1
c with whom there is no variation or 1 shifting shadow.
c Of his own will he d brought us forth by the word of truth,
In the exercise of a His will He b brought us forth by c the word of truth,
e that we should be a kind of f firstfruits of his creatures.
so that we would be 1 a kind of d first fruits 2 among His creatures.
