BIBLE READING: Nehemiah 4:1-23
KEY BIBLE VERSE: At last the wall was completed to
half its original height around the entire city, for the people had worked very
hard. Nehemiah 4:6
PERSEVERANCE REVEALS GENUINE COMMITMENT
The work of rebuilding the wall progressed well because the people had set
their hearts and minds on accomplishing the task. They did not lose heart or
give up, but persevered in the work. If God has called you to a task,
determine to complete it, even if you face opposition or discouragement. The
rewards of work well done will be worth the effort.
BIBLE READING: Mark 13:1-23
KEY BIBLE VERSE: Everyone will hate you because of
your allegiance to me. But those who endure to the end will be saved. Mark
PERSEVERANCE REVEALS GENUINE BELIEVERS
To believe in Jesus and “endure to the end” will

BIBLE READING: Hebrews 3:1-19
KEY BIBLE VERSE: Christ, the faithful Son, was in
charge of the entire household. And we are God’s household, if we keep up our
courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. Hebrews 3:6
PERSEVERANCE REVEALS GENUINE FAITH
Because Christ lives in us, we can remain courageous and hopeful to the end.
We are not saved by being steadfast and firm in our faith, but our courage
and hope do reveal that our faith is real. Without this enduring
faithfulness, we could easily be blown away by the winds of temptation, false
teaching, or persecution. Hebrews 3:14
We are to "STRIVE" to be "PERFECT" work hard to
not to conform to the things of this world and the sin in it.
