Scripture of the Day - April 3, 2012

Ephesians 6:18c ...and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

The definition of perseverance is "continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition." God never promised us that life would be easy, especially the Christian life. He never pretended that everything would go our way and we would have no opposition. In fact, He warned us that it would be tough, He warned us that we were in a battle for our souls, a battle that we could never win on our own.

We are told to watch with all perseverance because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Peter tells us to be sober and be vigilant. 1 Peter 5:8
And Paul tells us to watch and pray earnestly and humbly for our fellow Christians with all perseverance. Never give up! Even if the situation looks hopeless to you, never give up! Even if the person seems like they're never going to "get it", never give up! Persevere to the end! Overcome all natural desire to give up and keep fighting the good fight. Pray without ceasing. Never let go of the Master's hand.
