Hope Through Perseverance


I'm the annoying type who gets frustrated when mildly inconvenienced. And when I say mildly inconvenienced, I mean, I EVERYTHING puts a crick in my neck or a pain in my posterior.


However the Word of God states:

"and we exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. ~Romans 5:2c-5

All of that annoyance and frustration through the toughest part of our days should be recalibrated into a reason to keep going. That perseverance in the hardest of times is building endurance to continue to follow God's leading.

Why do we bother to follow God?

Because of the HOPE.

Our hope of the promised eternal life offered to us by God through the sacrifice of His innocent, beloved Son as propitiation, a fancy word for full-payment, of our sins on the cross and through Christ Jesus' resurrection three days later.

The hope offered, and received, by us, Believer, does not disappoint because it is eternal. Through faith in the work God has done for us, this eternal life is ours and waiting for us at the end of our days.

So persevere.

Take one more step.

You will not be disappointed.
