Do not lag in zeal, be enthusiastic in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in suffering, persist in prayer.
REJOICE – ENDURE – PERSIST
Three words to remember – post them – repeat them – share them – and then DO them…
We all have schedules, appointments, places to be, things to do. We try to keep those appointments because we may not get another one for weeks! If we do not keep our schedule things start running into each other and something has to give!
Is daily prayer a part of your schedule? Do you have an appointment that you keep with God daily? Do you find it is easy to put that time with God off? Oh, I will do it later…. And then later never comes…
Communication – an important part of ANY relationship. Can you have an intimate relationship with Christ if you don’t communicate daily?
Rejoice in grace of Jesus – He took on sin – all sin – so we have the opportunity to spend eternity with Him.
Endure the trials – the trials that make our faith stronger if we rely on Christ.
Persist in prayer – keep the communication going in order to rejoice in hope and endure in suffering.
