Faith that Endures

Which describes you

Hebrews 11 Jesus spoke to Thomas: “blessed are the people who have not seen and yet have believed.” Peter echoed this in his letter to the persecuted saints: “You have not seen him, but you love him. You do not see him now, but you believe in him, and so you rejoice with indescribable and glorious joy,” And now we too fall into that same picture frame, having never seen or been an eyewitness, yet we believe. Mark reminds us of this same principle: – if you choose to save your life, you will lose it in the end, but if you choose to lose your life for Christ’s sake, you will save it for all eternity;

The author of Hebrews reminds us that we must have faith, that God exists, and that he rewards those who seek him. If we should waver, we incur the judgment of God. The author wants us to learn from those who have gone on before us how to persevere in times of trials and triumphs so that one day we will hear: “Well done thou good and faithful servant…”

Are you stepping back because your eye is searching for something tangible rather than looking with eyes of faith? Remember this principle: “If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us”. [2Tim 2]
