The Preached Word – Pastor Deborah Valrie
Sermon Title: "The Lord has a Crown for You! Trials and Temptations"
Scripture: James 1:2-8
Sunday's message encouraged us to take stock of our current circumstances and recognize the trials and temptations we struggle with daily. Led by Pastor Deborah Valrie, the sermon centered on James' words to early Christians, reminding these believers to hold steadfast in their faith and grow in their spiritual maturity by living what they said they believed. His words on perseverance and relying on the strength of the Lord resonate thousands of years later.
Pastor Deborah's main points:
1. The Cost of the Crown is Unavoidable and Non-negotiable
2. The Cost of the Crown is Equitable!
3. The Cost of the Crown is Worth it!
