How We Endure


"We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater; therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure." ~2 Thessalonians 1:3-4

All stories of our brothers and sisters in Christ do two things:

First, it's a call-to-arms. We remember to pray for those in the body of Christ we’ve never met in places we’ve never been for things we may, or may not, personally understand. We are called to action lead by the Holy Spirit in a move we wouldn't have normally done on our own. We send financial support. We dig into our personal stashes to meet their needs. We become ripe with ideas of ways to serve them directly or indirectly.

Second, it buoys our own faith.

When we can’t walk another minute, we remember stories of faith so great we don’t notice the extra mile we’ve walked while talking about it. We connect with a powerful God in new ways by hearing the impossible things He has done. We connect with each other by passing on the stories of hope. All through the Bible we are told to remember, to share with others, and to continue walking faith, to endure.

Tell me your story.

Give me another reason to praise our most holy God for the great things He has done.
