This Week – Can you define the word endurance?  Or is it one of those words that you have a sense of the meaning, but not sure you can define it? Endurance can be physical or emotional.  But endurance has a spiritual component.  It’s about spiritual endurance that we talk about all this week on CrossHope.

Monday – The text we study this week is actually thought to be a hymn in the early church!  It opens with, “If we die with Him, we will live with Him.  If we endure, we will reign with Him.”  Endurance is an important word to the Lord.  Endurance means to last in spite of opposition; it’s keeping on in spite of setbacks in life.  What do you endure for the Lord?

Tuesday – We begin with the phrase, “If we die with Him, we will live with Him.”  We all know people that have died with anger, bitterness, or resentment.  To die with Christ is to recognize the power of the cross in every aspect of our lives.  The cross “defines” who we are and what we do!  What defines you?

Wednesday – The second phrase says, “If we endure, we will reign with Him”.  What is it you feel that you have to endure in your life?  We share a story told by Christian psychologist, Dr. Henry Cloud talking about things we endure that may surprise you.  The third phrase is frightening: “If we disown Him, He will also disown us!”  If that’s true, it’s one of the most frightening statements in the New Testament.

Thursday – We tell the true story of missionaries who discovered the faithfulness of God in a life and death situation in Peru, South America.  They discover, at least for them, God worked in their “praise and endurance” in a powerful way.  This story may speak to your life.  The Bible says that “God inhabits the praise of His people”.  Do you and I offer God a place to inhabit with our praise?

Friday – We close with the illustration of a man I see every Sunday morning posting signs on street corners that advertise properties for sale.  That’s his job!  Is it possible that we are “signs” of God’s word and truth in the lives of other people?  I think we are!  Have you ever thought of yourself as a “sign” to other people in your family or work?  Your endurance is a sign of your faithfulness to the Lord God almighty!

  5. I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

  7. My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
