Why “Joyful Persistence”? Romans 15:4

“JOYFUL PERSISTENCE”

Theme verse

“…that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4

img_1862

Through proper use the Scriptures will increase hope in us. The Scriptures do this in two ways. First, through endurance.  The Bible calls us to hard work and discipline which produces endurance. Second, through encouragement. The Bible makes amazing, incredible, and precious promises which produces life sustaining encouragement. These two things, endurance and encouragement produce what I call “Joyful Persistence”.
