Welcome to "Perseverance Just What is this All About"

There are so many words to this day I have to look up on what they mean


1 of 4

There are so many words to this day I have to look up on what they mean. I always wondered what Perseverance meant when mentioned in the Bible and now I know check it out ! Kind of sounds crazy doesn't for me not to actually know what it really meant?

Definition of PERSEVERANCE

: continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition : the action or condition or an instance of persevering : steadfastness


His perseverance was rewarded: after many rejections, he finally found a job.
Perseverance is required to perfect just about any skill.

Action or condition of steadfastness. OT Israel waited generations for fulfillment of promises that many believers never lived to see (Hebrews 11:1, 13, 21-22, 39).

The promise to Abraham sustained hope for centuries before Canaan was possessed. The lesson of the wilderness journey, when the waning of initial zeal prevented the people from entering the Promised Land, was never forgotten (3:16-19).

Prophets looked constantly beyond failure and tragedy to distant horizons, and they nourished a patient faith.

Jeremiah 32:1-15 Hosea 3:4-5 Joel 2:28-29 Habakkuk 2:1-3 Daniel 12:11-13

The NT everywhere urges similar perseverance. Among several Greek expressions, the usual word, proskartereo, has the root meaning “to attend continually, adhere steadfastly” 'Mark 3:9 Acts 8:13; 10:7 Romans 13:6, and is variously translated “devoted,” “continued,” “constant,” “[be] steadfast.”

This persistent patience is called for in prayer in well doing in Christian teaching in affliction in grace in faith in divine love in standing firm in abiding in Christ in running with patience in not falling away and in being zealous to confirm our call and election

  • Romans 2:7

  • Galatians 6:9

  • Acts 2:42

  • 2 Peter 1:10

  • 1 Corinthians 16:13

  • Hebrews 6:12 12:1

  • Hebrews 3:12 4:1-10


The failure in perseverance of Judas, Demas, and Hymenaeus must be kept in mind, as well as the dread possibility of neglecting so great a salvation , being disqualified, falling while we think we stand, and committing apostasy.

  • John 6:71

  • 2 Timothy 2:17

  • 2 Timothy 4:10

  • Hebrews 2:3

  • Hebrews 6:1-8

  • 1 Corinthians 9:27

  • 1 Corinthians 10:12

  • Matthew 10:22; 24:13


For, as Jesus said, “He who endures to the end will be saved”. Such extraordinary emphasis cannot be accidental. The pressures of pagan society, the danger of persecution, emotional reaction after a wonderful initial experience, and the apparent implication of “instant salvation,” made it imperative for Christians to understand that by their endurance they would inherit eternal salvation.

Luke 21:19 Romans 5:3 Colossians 1:11

Yet Scripture never implies that perseverance depends entirely upon human effort. In the OT, the redeeming purpose of God is unswerving; God’s covenant stands, though it needs to be renewed. Jeremiah 31:31-34

Divine love (Hebrew, hesed) connotes changeless loyalty; God “will never fail nor forsake” for “his own name’s sake.” The NT assurance is that Christ will raise his own at the last day—none shall pluck them from his hand or the Father’s. Christ will keep us from falling.

God is faithful; he works in us to will and work for his good pleasure, and will not allow us to be tempted beyond our strength. Nothing, in heaven or earth, present or future, shall separate us from divine love.

We are already sealed by the Holy Spirit as a guarantee of eternal salvation, and we are kept by the power of God unto a salvation yet to be revealed. The scriptural tension between exhortation to perseverance and assurance of salvation has given rise to much debate. The intellectual paradox is resolved only in spiritual experience.

We are to "STRIVE" to be "PERFECT" work hard to not to conform to the things of this world and the sin in it.
