You need endurance to do the will of God.
—HEBREWS 10:36

When I was in college, my two roommates were training for a marathon. One day, they asked me to run eight miles with them. “Sure,” I said, even though I wasn’t in shape. About a mile into the run, I began to lag behind. “Everything hurts,” I told them. They refused to offer pity. “You’ve got to build up your endurance.” All these years later, I work out regularly. I’ve learned that only consistent exercise will keep my muscles strong. God wants us to have spiritual endurance, too. So start training for the marathon of faith that lies before you. Become strong through prayer and sacrifice. Even when life hurts, keep going. You need endurance to do the will of God.
