A question we must ask ourselves is whether or not we are committed to Christ in the hard times, just as we are when life is easy. Are we people who endure and rely on God through hardship, are fully committed and loyal to Christ, and are we people who are obedient to God’s Word? In James 1, we learn that committed disciples… 1.) Endure 2.) Are Loyal and Committed 3.) Obey
