The Value of Perseverance

Difficult, but do-able

A golden wedding anniversary. Graduation. Crossing the finish line.

Each requires perseverance—so valuable in business, athletics, and countless endeavors.

The Christian life is an obstacle course toward heaven.

Considering what we have to gain—and lose—can we let obstacles become barriers?

God provides His word to guide us, His promises to motivate us, His Spirit to strengthen us, and His church to encourage us.

Hang in there!

One day will be our last day. May that day find us in our place and at our task.

“Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised” (Hebrews 10:35-36).
