Rev. 10-14

Rev. 13:10..........This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints.
Rev. 14: 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.

This morning as I read Revelations never quite fully understanding it...these phrases jumped out at me....patient endurance and faithfulness.....

Endurance implies trials and hardship and trouble and less than pleasant circumstances, having been, being a quitter, endurance is a NEW word for me. And here He asks for PATIENT endurance.....

Patient endurance......focused on Christ will be my only hope. Focused or even fleetingly thinking about me and what I can or could do just makes me want to QUIT. I have wrestled myself to an understanding of Jesus and who He is to and for me that I HEAR it this time........patient endurance. In being loved I CAN love and endure whatever until HE creates in me the LOVE He calls me to have.....???????????
