“…that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”(Rom 15:4)
Endurance- being able to stand firm inspite of difficult times.
Whenever we feel like giving up, quitting, or just throwing in the towel. We can always look to the Word of God for encouragement and hope.
Beloved, life is not a sprint, but it is a marathon; therefore we must pace ourselves so that we can endure. This race is not for the swift but this race can only be finished by those with endurance.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, (Rom 5:3-4)
Whenever we become exhausted and are tempted to give up; let us, “Think of Him who endured such opposition against Himself by sinners, so that you may not grow weary in your souls and give up.”(Heb12:3)
Beloved let us lay aside every weight and sin that prevents, distract or hinder us from steadfastly running the Christian race and keep our eyes and mind on the promises of God, which are yes and amen.
“He who endures to the end will be saved”(Matt 24:13)
