The Perseverance of the Saints

Many people profess to believe in Jesus but when their faith is tested then they have no endurance, no perseverance. They easily give up and they walk away from Jesus. Only those who endure until the end will be saved, that is the QUALITY OF THE SAINTS. They persevere, we read in Revelation 14:12 ”Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.” those people who obey Jesus, because He spoke the words of God and they keep their faith in Him, they endure, they do not give up, because without faith it is impossible to please God.
We read in Hebrews 11:6 “without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.“ Many people pray and they don’t receive an answer and then they just give up. They say:”God didn’t show up!” They didn’t trust Him!
God rewards those who diligently seek Him. Only those who endure until the end will win the prize of eternal life. The apostle James wrote in James 1:5 “ But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But HE MUST ASK IN FAITH WITHOUT ANY DOUBTING, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.7 For let not that man expect that he will receive anything from the Lord,” Those who go to God BELIEVE that He is, they trust Him, they endure even though they see nothing happening, they trust Him. They KNOW that He will not leave them, they KNOW that He will not let them down and therefor they ENDURE, they keep on trusting although there is no sign that God has heard their prayer.
If you do not endure you will not receive anything. You need to endure in your faith. You need to hold on! If you pray, wait expectantly. God has heard your prayer and He will answer, but if you do not endure you will not receive. IF YOU DO NOT KEEP ON OBEYING JESUS YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE PRIZE OF ETERNAL LIFE.
People are so concerned about themselves. They just pray:”God give me this, God give me that,” It is all about themselves, its not about the kingdom of God whereas Jesus said:”Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these other things will be added unto you.” Make God your father. Your Father will never let you down. Your earthly father might let you down but our heavenly Father cannot. MAKE HIM YOUR FATHER! Trust Him and you will never be disappointed. IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT GOD, DON’T THINK HE WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER! You need to go to him with faith and with trust and with perseverance. Those who endure until the end, they will receive what was promised!
Are you enduring? Are you hanging in there and trusting Jesus with everything that is in you?
May Jesus bless you.
