A verse was shown to me today. It’s a verse I have read before, but never really took the time to try and understand. But I’m glad I did, for I feel that it’s message has become clearer and I have since realised its importance.
For consider Him that endures such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest Ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
When you start to feel tired and exhausted in your walk, consider Jesus who, the sinless one, bore our sins. Who had every right to give up. Who has every understanding if He chose to not go through with the great sacrifice.
Yet He endured, He conquered, and He won.
All to save us… you and I. All with the weight of everyone’s sin and guilt on His shoulders.
So don’t give up, though the world seems against you, remember that the world was against Him. When you feel broken and battered, that’s how Jesus felt; and when you feel like letting go of Him, remember that He clung on, for His life and for ours.
So don’t lose hope, just remember that our life here is “but a stepping stone”, life in Heaven is eternal, and anything we endure here will be rewarded more than ten-fold in Heaven.
Endurance is not easy, but the reward is far greater than anything suffered here on Earth. So hold on and remember Him.
