Christian Endurance


“Let Endurance have its perfect result”


While studying something in the book of Revelation, I was struck by some very important words of commendation that Jesus had for some Christians in Ephesus who were about to face severe persecution:

“‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. 3 I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary. Revelation 2:2-3

Verse 3 has three different tenses that each emphasise endurance differently. Maybe we could put it this way:

  Endurance is your enduring quality, and you stand firm in My name as an example of untiring defenders of the  faith.


Jesus had once said: He who endures to the end, it is he who will be saved. Matthew 24:13.

And James 1:4, "Let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Also Hebrews 10:36, For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.

Again in Revelation 14:12-13, Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God, and their faith in Jesus. And I heard a loud voice from heaven, saying, "Write. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on."

"Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labours, for their deeds follow them." 


·       Faith is conviction, trust, obedience and endurance.

·       Endurance is faith that never gives up.

·       Your salvation depends on your enduring faith.

·       Never quit.
