Pastor Carl Stephens, September 3rd, 2023

Pastor Stephens brings a powerful message titled "Reasons to Persevere".

 


Sermon Insights:


Without perseverance, we may miss out on the promises that God has for our lives. Just like a diamond in the rough, God's promise may not always be immediately visible or easy to attain. But those who stand firm until the end will receive the ultimate reward and salvation, as stated in Matthew 24:13 NIV. Watch the video attached to hear more from Pastor Stephens on this topic!


Scripture References:


Romans 5:3-4 NIV

3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.


Matthew 13:20-21 NIV

20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.


1 Peter 2:20 NIV

But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.


Matthew 24:13 NIV

But the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.


Hebrews 10:36 NIV

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.



 

We hope this message encouraged you and touched your life. Be blessed and have a wonderful week!
