Hebrews Chapter 10: 32 Don't ever forget those early days when you first learned about Christ. Remember how you remained faithful even though it meant terrible suffering.
35 Do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord, no matter what happens. Remember the great reward it brings you! 36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so you continue to do God's will. Then you will recieve all that he has promised. 37 "For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. 38 And a righteous person will live by faith. But I will have no pleasure in anyone who turns away." 39 But we are not like those who turn their backs on God and seal their fate. We have faith that assures our salvation.
Chapter 11: 1 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. 2 God gave his approval to people in days of old because of their faith.
6 So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants go come to him must believe that there is a God and that he reward those who sincerely seek him.
Faith enables Christians to face trials. Genuine faith includes the commitment to stay true to God when we are under fire. Endurance builds character and leads to victory.
You can have victory in your trials if you don't give up or turn your back on Christ. Stay true to Christ and pray for endurance. He will never grow tired of supporting you.
1. The bible says discipline is necessary for growth. See Hebrews 12.
2. If someone were to ask you, " Why should I take obedience to God so seriously?" How would you respond?
**3. Would your life reflect the answer you would give?**
Please, one of Satan's biggest lies and most successful is, "You can do it tomorrow."
My friend in Christ, we are never guaranteed another day.
Hebrews 3: 12 Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that you own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. 13 Tiy nyst warb each other every day, as long as it it called "today," so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. 15 But never forget the warning: " Today you must listen to his voice. Don't harden you hearts against him as Israel did when they rebelled."
