Scripture of the Day - June 6, 2012

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

To endure is to undergo (as a hardship) especially without giving in, or to regard with acceptance or tolerance, or to continue in the same state, or to remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding.
As Christians we must endure, we must press toward the mark, we must have the attitude "THIS ONE THING I DO". We must be fixed and focused on Jesus, the Savior of our soul. 
We often excuse not following Jesus with the reasoning that He was God so of course he could do this and that. But how about following Paul as he followed Christ? Paul was just a man. Paul had to fight his carnal nature just as we do. What makes Paul stand out though, was his complete and utter faith in God. Faith can move mountains, faith can endure to the end, faith pleases God. And folks there is no other way around it, we must please God if we are to be saved.
