"May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light."
(COLOSSIANS 1:11-12, ESV)
Statistics tell us that many who make a profession of faith in Jesus as their Lord and Savior drift away. Only 3 in 10 pastors stay in ministry beyond 10 years. What do we do to endure to the end and cross the finish line for the prize? Nothing. God gives us the power to endure through faith in Christ. In addition to giving us the necessary endurance, it is God Himself who has made us saints, qualifying us to inherit His kingdom.
Are you tired, burned out and thinking of walking away from Jesus? Then today receive His enduring blessing.
Philippians 2:12-13; 3:8-16
"IF ADAM IN PERFECTION COULD NOT KEEP HIMSELF IN PARADISE, HOW CAN HIS IMPERFECT CHILDREN BE SO PROUD AS TO RELY ON THEIR OWN STEADFASTNESS?"
(SERMON BY CHARLES SPURGEON, 1876)
