Blessed Is The Man Who Endures Temptation

Dear Berean Family, here is another video from our trip to Grand Marais. This week we will be considering James 1:12-15 dealing with temptation. When the believer sins and falls to temptation how wonderful to know that there is a precious fountain where all our sins can be washed away.

There are two books on temptation that I want to recommend to all of you to read. "The Pursuit of Holiness" by Jerry Bridges and the Puritan paperback published by Banner of Truth, "The Mortification of Sin" by John Owen. Both of these books are excellent studies on holiness and overcoming sin and temptation in the believer's life.

Last Sunday was such a blessing. The fellowship dinner with all the new families and guests was a tremendous time and the joy of the Lord was manifestly present!  

"Oh magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together." Psalm 34:3

God bless you all, 

Pastor Dickie
