Endurance

1 Peter 1:22-25

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
“All people are like grass, 
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; 
the grass withers and the flowers fall, 
but the word of the Lord endures forever.”
And this is the word that was preached to you.

 

The Word of God, spoken through dedicated men, will endure forever. As it says in Revelation 1:8:

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

God always has been, and always will be. We need to strive to walk with Christ so we can spend eternity with Him.

At times yes, it will be hard to persevere, but follow the command ‘pray without ceasing’ (see Colossians 4:2), and remain close to God. If you do this, it will still be hard sometimes; with the knowledge of an Everlasting God, however, you will be able to successfully endure the hardship (see Isaiah 40:30-31, and Philippians 4:13). Focus on His promise “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (see Hebrews 13:5), and know that He will always be there for you when you call on Him to help.

Matthew 10:22

“And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Mark 13:13

“And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”

Look at the verses above. Both of them say the same exact thing. Yes, people will make fun of you and hurt you because you are a Christian, but those who are steadfast in their belief in Jesus will receive
