Perseverance 101: What It Is & Why You Should Pass It

I wanted to quit…

but God. He still led me to the realisation that I should pray about my situation and really depend on Him about the matter of my heart. Galatians 1:10 says, “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

Dear Discouraged Discipler

I know what it feels like.

You ask them how they are and you try to reach out to them in love, but they do not respond. You wrestle in prayer for them everyday, but they do not even ask how you are. You try to be there for them in good times and in bad, yet they ignore you when things are not going their way. And in your attempt to love them by letting the Word of God speak to them, they take it against you.

But out of Christ’s love, you still protect them, trust them, hope in them and persevere in them (1 Corinthians 13). And out of Christ’s truth, you continue to love them.
