Run With Perseverance

Run with perseverance

When we get born again by believing in Jesus as Lord and saviour, our training for our eternal destiny had just begun and will continue for the rest of our time here on planet earth. What we do with our life here on earth determine what we do for all eternity. We are to fight the good fight (1 Timothy 6:12), to run with perseverance the race marked out for us (Hebrews 12:1), to be victorious in his kingdom here on earth, so we can we reign together with Him as king and lord for all eternity.

Preparation for eternity starts here on earth and ends here on earth. By the time you get to heaven, it will be too late for any training. Your reward or your prize will be fixed by then. By the time Jesus come, it will be too late. In the parable of the ten virgins that Jesus told his disciples when teaching them about the end times (Matthew 25:1-12), the foolish virgins did not have a long enough perspective. They never thought of the possibility of falling asleep. They represent those in the church who never prepare for the possibility that they might die and when they awake in heaven, they will find they bought nothing with them that of heavenly value. It will be too late by then to go and buy anything.

Jesus paid the ultimate price and have equipped us all with everything we need to live a victorious life here on earth. But we need to be committed and disciplined, like a good soldier and a faithful servant, watching that we are led by His Spirit and not by the corrupt standards of the world.

Hebrews 12:1-2 Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. (NLT).

An excerpt from the book Persevere with Power by Pastor Samuel Rodriguez:

Do not make the temporary permanent.

Do not mistake the process with the promise.

Do not confuse what you are going through with where you are going to.

If you find yourself going through something you have never been through before, then it is only because you are about to step into what you have never stepped into before. If you have been pushing as you have never been pushing before, it is only because you are about to carry an anointing that you have never carried before.


God have the perfect plan for you. Trust Him and seek Him with all your heart.
