James 1:12

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

 

James pronounced a blessing on the individual who endures temptation. If they have stood the test, they will receive the victor’s wreath at the Judgment Seat of Christ. This is not a suggestion that eternal life is the reward for enduring testing, but those who have endured with fortitude will be honored for that kind of life.
