Perseverance is important.

Ministry of the Word-True Spirituality

Memory Verse

“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body”(2Corinthians 4:8-10)

Beloved

You have to learn the attribute of perseverance.

The trials and challenges you go through in life are for your own good. Have faith in the word of God. For example, before Joseph became a Prime Minister in Egypt, he needed to pass through the ‘pit’ and ‘prison’. The secret of his victory was his faith in the God of righteousness and having the right attitude.

Many Christians may not know that the man who wrote about two third of the New Testament, apostle Paul, wrote a large chunk of it while in prison. Instead of complaining, grumbling and murmuring, he persevered and maintained the right attitude. Hear him:

“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body”(2Corinthians 4:8-10)

What about Jesus Christ Himself? Can you imagine what he went through on earth? This might explain why there is a mixture of love, joy, peace, long suffering etc within the fruit of the Spirit ( Galatians 5:22)).

Henceforth, no matter what you going through, no more grumbling. No more complaining, rather focus on the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Remember that as you have spoken, so the Lord will do for you (Numbers 14:28).

Have a Spirit-filled new week

Thank you Jesus.

Prayer

Father, we thank you for your words that have kept us alive. Please, help us to learn perseverance in life in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
