And he who overcometh and keepeth my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations.Rev. 2:26 KJV
Christians, in today’s culture, are often the target of social media censorship, ridiculed for a lack of “wokeness”, accused of playing identity politics and many other denunciations. These charges emerge when we stand for the truth of the Bible, the Christian history of America, and Christian nationalism.
In an era when communication sources, news media, politics and information flow at lightening speed, it is easy to be overwhelmed, discouraged and confused. The criticism of traditional values is real and harsh.
However, victory over this ignominy is founded in God’s Word where we receive life and light.
The Scripture focuses our attention on the idea of perseverance as the key to triumph. The 1828 Webster’s Dictionary defines perseverance as “persistence in anything undertaken”. The one who is persistent shall overcome and keep my works to the end.
Perseverance and constancy are vital to overcoming. As Christians in today’s world, we must continually deepen our knowledge and understanding of God’s Word, America’s Christian history and Biblical form of government.
Teach the Children:
- Perseverance is the opposite of a weak spirit.
- Perseverance contains the ideas of endurance and patience.
- Never grow weary in well-doing, for you shall triumph. (Rev. 2:26)
