Strength Unto Steadfastness and Patience

Back to Message Archive

Moral and spiritual strength is ours by the power of God, and the result is steadfastness and patience in trials, just like Jesus demonstrated enduring the cross.

  • Steadfastness-bearing up under a load and continuing
  • Patience-enduring wrong without retaliation or retreat, not lose heart-longsuffering. Waiting on the Lord.

Paul exhorts us to persevere by God’s strength in hardship, and James highlights how we ought to think about our trials-considering them pure joy because of what they produce. Steadfastness is a stepping stone to perfect completeness.

God has a gift he wants to give you, and it can only come through trials.
