Daily Verses: Hebrews 11.
Key Verse: 2 Timothy 4:7:”I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
At the end of Apostle Paul’s life, he was able to boast that he has finished the race well and has kept his faith. This means that our faith towards Jesus needs to be taken care of or nurtured. The faith at the end of someone’s life will determine whether he/she will life an eternal life with Jesus. As a believer, our faith will be tested often. For example, when we are experiencing a heavy problem, are we going to believe in the Lord’s promise and help or are we going to find a way out using our own strength and unbeliever’s advice? Our faith can also be tested when there are attractive offers that are not according to the Word of God. The question now is what decision are you going to make when given those choices? The characters mentioned in Hebrews 11 were people of strong faith until the end of their lives. They continued to have strong faith even though they didn’t receive everything that they put their faith in. These people can be called heroes or witnesses of faith. To be able to keep our faith, we need to be close to God and live a life according to the Holy Spirit. By doing so, when problems/shakings come, our faith will be strong until the end.
The more you enter into God’s presence, the stronger your faith will be.
No matter how tired I am today, I will pray and read the Word of God.
Romans 3:27:” Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.
I will pray until every one of my family members faithfully follow Jesus until the end.
