The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with him, we will also live with him;if we endure, we will also reign with him;if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself. 2 Timothy 2:11-13 When we endure with Christ, we will also reign with Him. When... Continue Reading →

Endurance and Faith

If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. Revelations 13:10 The Message translates this Scripture "They’ve made their bed; now they must lie in... Continue Reading →

For What Will I Suffer?

For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 1 Peter 2:20 For me, it is easy to think "If I am going to suffer, at least... Continue Reading →

Patiently Waiting

For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise. Hebrews 6:13-15 God keeps His promises. They may not come in my timing or even look like I think it... Continue Reading →

The Wealth He Gives

Riches and honor are with me,    enduring wealth and righteousness. Proverbs 8:18 As much as I would love this promise to be about money when it speaks of riches and enduring wealth, it is speaking of wisdom. Wisdom is a wealth that lasts and provides a path to righteousness when applied. When we fear God and allow... Continue Reading →

Example of Endurance

 But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 24:13 This passage mirror's Luke's writing in Luke 21:19, before both, Jesus shares all the things that could lead His follower's astray. These scriptures were His encouragement to endure through the trials. As I red the passages before I immediately thought of all that... Continue Reading →

Instruction, Endurance and Encouragement

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4 Hope comes from Scriptures and from endurance. We learn from what we have read and what we are walking though. Both build faith, which is the evidence of things hoped...

Lay It Down

 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the...
