Welcome to Southern California Seminary's free online courses: Seminary for Everyone
When we face trials, we can respond as victims or victors. Dr. David Jeremiah examines five instructions from the book of James that guided the early Christians to live victoriously at a time when they were scattered and forced to take shelter abroad. These same principles can guide us through adversity and trials today.
Section 1 – What to Do When You Do Not Know What to Do | Live as Victors | Facing the Trials of Life
Students will explore, consider, and refocus on what the Bible teaches about how to courageously face unexpected, challenging, and difficult situations in life. Trials, responded to correctly, can make you stronger.
