“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4)
This tells me that everything in the Bible teaches us things like endurance and encouragement toward hope.
So, during this season------Oh to learn endurance! Endurance with hope builds courage.
In times of uncertainty------Oh the courage that comes through learning endurance! Encouragement that overcomes fear.
Even in a pandemic---Oh for more hope that comes through endurance and encouragement!
The next two verses of Romans 15 are my prayer for all of us today, that we would find HOPE in these words, ENDURING HOPE:
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify God—the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
