Posts Tagged ‘endurance’

I was at a meeting today, and it began with a brother reading a couple of Bible passages and sharing a few thoughts about them. He spoke about challenges we were facing and about the need to endure, and how we are able to endure because our God is the God of endurance and encouragement – as we so clearly see when we look at Jesus. As we look at his example, his life, his death, his glorious resurrection.

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

And that’s the answer for a messy head. You need to look at Jesus. Things are a mess, or we are weary, we are facing trouble and see that things are not going to be resolved any time soon. We’re anxious about things ahead – the uncertainty of not knowing the future. Looking at Jesus is the answer. It might be hard to change where we’re looking. Find a way to look to Jesus. Music, a good bishop, a collect or just doing nothing much.  Running on and looking at Jesus is the answer. It’s always the answer.

Hebrews121and2
