In this teaching, hear Pastor Mike give a message about perseverance and used the apostle Paul to exemplify how the source of our energy is through the giving of ourselves. Like Paul, whose body may have been a mess, but still he rejoiced in his suffering knowing that suffering produces endurance. He had a mature faith that gave and gave and gave until giving became addictive.
We should rejoice in suffering because we know that with God’s strength, we can outlast the temporary strength of this world. We are built on the rock of God’s Word. The world is built on the sands of selfishness and comfort.
Pray for us, too, that God will give us many opportunities to speak about his mysterious plan concerning Christ. That is why I am here in chains. 4 Pray that I will proclaim this message as clearly as I should.
After you have read this letter, pass it on to the church at Laodicea so they can read it, too. And you should read the letter I wrote to them.
17 And say to Archippus, “Be sure to carry out the ministry the Lord gave you.”
18 HERE IS MY GREETING IN MY OWN HANDWRITING—PAUL.
Remember my chains.
May God’s grace be with you.
