Model of Perseverance

Brooks Maynard, 15

devozine Rock Climber2 TS 139543547Jesus demonstrates perseverance. Jesus kept on preaching God’s word, no matter what life threw at him.


Perseverance is important to our faith. Like Jesus, our Lord, we must trust God, no matter what obstacles block our path. God will never give up on us, and we should never give up on God.


Philippians 4:13 (NRSV) says, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” A keep-on-keeping-on attitude is key to our faith, and Jesus is our example.


When has Jesus inspired you to keep on keeping on?
