We progress in our faith through perseverance. We each face trials, challenges, and uncertainty. We grow, not by giving up, but by facing these things head on through faith. We persevere through them.
Introduction: What do you think about when you think about perseverance?
Learn from Joseph, Moses, and James how to persevere through uncertainty, a slow start, and trials.
Not everything is as it seems. Sometimes, there are deeper spiritual realities at work beneath the surface of what we see. We need to trust God, remain faithful, and persevere through challenges and trials.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finis its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything" (James 1:2-4, TNIV).
