HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

16. Perseverant

Jesus said in Matthew 24:13, “ But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

Paul said in Galatians 6:9, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

We live in a day when immediate gratification is usually demanded. That means that very few people excel in the virtue of perseverance. Very few people keep on and keep on in the same ministry when there is a significant difficulty.

Vision without perseverance, however, results in fairy tales, not fruitful ministry.

A minister once told me that the reason he thinks many pastors fail to see revival in their churches is that they leave just before it is about to happen. The long haul is hard, but it pays. The big tree is felled by many, many little chops.

The criticisms that come your way will be long forgotten if you keep on doing the Lord’s will.
