Enduring Faith

Luke 21:12-15
Solomon said it once: "The race is not given to the swift,  neither to the strong. Ecclesiastes 9:11. Jesus himself said that "he who endures to the end shall be saved." Matthew 10:22.
The key to endurance in this race is faith in God. If we believe that He is who He says, and will therefore do what only God can do,  then it is easy to endure. Hebrews 11:6.
Paul in Acts 21:13 was willing not only to be bound,  but to die for the gospels sake. He knew to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8.  Can I make this same proclamation?  Only with enduring faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
