In James 1:12-15, James sets out to distinguish between outward trials and inward temptations. While having written, at length, about outward trials, James lays out the rewards for believers who endure them. He then examines the issue of the inward temptations with which believers struggle. Notably, James explains the true source of the inward temptations. Perhaps in understanding the source of temptations, believers will be better prepared to escape them. As well, by understanding the reward of trials, believers will be better equipped to endure them.
