DAY SIX: Endurance
Scripture: Matthew 24:13, Ecclesiastes 7:8 & Hebrews 12:1-4
Endurance: To bear trials, have fortitude, persevere; have patience, suffer.
Running the race of God’s kingdom involves the cutting away of the flesh so we could live, moment by moment, by the Spirit’s guidance. We must let God plow our lives so that any hindering stones (sins, habits and attitudes) can be removed. The Christian race begins at conversion and continues till Jesus returns or we die to go and meet Him.
“The start may not be as difficult, but it is the end that matters.”
Many well-meaning believers are not equipped with this truth so they begin the race but never finish. It’s easy to follow Christ when the sun is shining. On the other hand, God really watches our attitude on rainy and stormy days. When nothing seems to work and everything seems to be going against you; when things are really hard –– these are the moments when our faith is tested, but these are also the moments when our faith is made stronger.
