Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

James 5:11 "Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy."

James is saying, We look back at the courage, faith and patience of these believers and call them blessed! They are happy now; the glory of God rests upon them. They felt honored to be counted worthy to suffer for Christ’s sake. Now they are glorified in Him.

“You have heard (especially) of the patience of Job" in the book that bears his name. Though he was severely tried in the loss of all temporal comforts, possessions and friends, he did not murmur against God or charge Him foolishly (Job 1:21-22). You have also seen the Lord’s purpose in all this and how He richly blessed Job, for the Lord is full of pity, tenderness and mercy. The Lord loves His children and all that He brings to pass in their lives is for their eternal good (Job 42:10; Psalm 111:4).
