Growing Through Perseverance

HEBREW 10:35-39

Ø The Christian life is like a race in which perseverance is necessary to reach the finish line.

Ø Sadly, many have abandoned this race due to lack of perseverance.

Ø Many have stumbled and decided not to get up.

Ø Many have become discouraged and stopped running.

Ø But those who were conscious of the great importance of perseverance, in the midst of difficulties and temptation, were able to finish the race.

Ø In this lesson we will learn the importance of perseverance.

 

1. Persevering In Spite Of Opposition

Ø People's mockery should not be a motive to not persevere: Nehemiah 4:1-5

 

Ø Floggings and jail couldn't hinder Paul and Silas from singing and praying:  Acts 16:25

 

Ø God is delighted with those who persevere in spite of opposition: Job 1:8, 19-22

 

 2. The Benefits Of Perseverance

1.  To perfect our lives for when times of temptation and trials do arrive we can resist: James 1:2-4

2.  We can have the ability to help others persevere: 2 Corinthians 1:4 

3.  To produce for ourselves earthly and heavenly rewards. The strength to persevere, for us, is a supernatural reward that God gives us (Hebrews 10:35-39).

Only the Christians that persevere will be rewarded: Revelation 2:10

3.   The Results Of The Lack Of Perseverance
1.     The loss of our testimony and influence in front of friends and strangers: Genesis 13:12, 19:14

  1. The mocking of those who saw us before living a Christian life: Luke 14:28-29
  2. The loss of our reward because we did not persevere: Mark 13:13

And who are you...?

Ø A story goes that there was once a hare and a tortoise ran a race.

Ø The hare, as we all know, is an animal of great velocity.

Ø On the other hand, the tortoise is characterized by its very slow movements.

Ø While the hare rested the tortoise never stopped "running".

Ø The perseverance of the tortoise was the determining factor for its victory over the speedy hare.

Ø There are Christians who started with a lot of fire but they burned out.

Ø The ones that have endured in the Christian life are those who ran slowly but with a steady pace.

Ø Day after day they come to church, comply with their duties and patiently await the coming of the Lord.

Ø What are you, a hare or a tortoise?
