For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what is promised. Heb.10:36.
We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. Rom.5:3-4, ESV.
Dear ones, are you just weary from the spiritual battle, from discouragement, heavy trials, difficult circumstances? Think of the saints who are older than we are and who have been running the race a bit longer. They have suffered, borne the cross, gone on with God and now testify of His faithfulness. Their testimony is so encouraging: God gave them the strength to endure through it all. He will also help us endure- to the end.
My Master has been faithful to me; how can I betray Him at the end? -Polycarp
