Hebrews 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.
It is the end of the work week! We have almost made it through. If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to a few more hours at home, perhaps sleeping in on Saturday, taking care of the chores at home, and a wonderful day of worship and fellowship on Sunday. You worked hard this week and now it is winding down. One more day to get through – Friday; and we’re heading home to enjoy the time away from the hectic and busy days we are leaving behind for a while.
Walking with God does require endurance. While He does His part to fill us and strengthen us with His Spirit, we still must do our part to “exercise” our faith. We are stretched and tested in the gym room of trials. We do our part by staying the course and trusting God.
Brothers and sisters, we have a glorious prize at the end of this race. He promised us; and He never breaks is promises. As we end this week with a longing for home, may it be a reminder of the promise we have in our heavenly home with Him!
Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
