Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Persistence defined: the quality of continuing steadily despite problems or difficulties.
To continue in something take tremendous effort and discipline; especially when surrounding circumstances become difficult to bear. Persistence defines what you’re made of. Many times people talk a good talk but when it comes down to doing the do they retreat in fear. Obtaining Godly success takes more than smooth talking; it takes faith walking.
Jesus said, “If you continue in my word.” He wasn’t speaking negative by inserting the word, if, He was simply speaking truth. Jesus knew the importance of persistence. He was teaching His disciplines the value of consistency despite difficulties. Persistence is a quality that must be developed through practice.
Start with the little things in your life; unfinished projects and unfulfilled promises that you’ve make to yourself and others. The little things will help you prepare for the bigger things.
When the road of life you are traveling is suddenly faced with a vicious storm you are now qualified and equip to master it.
