Throughout history, God has offered strength to help people persevere through difficult situations. Jesus persevered through death itself to make it possible for us to have a forever relationship with God. Because of what Jesus did for us, we can trust Him to help us find the strength to persevere through whatever we face.
We started our new series by taking look at Matthew 28:16-20 and Acts 1-2 to read about the last conversation Jesus had with His disciples before going back to heaven. He gave them a huge mission—to share His message to ends of the earth. Jesus also promised that they wouldn’t have to do it alone. He would send the Holy Spirit to help. When the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost, the Spirit gave the disciples power to accomplish the task Jesus set out for them.
Keep going because God is with you. We all have jobs to do. Some jobs feel completely overwhelming and make us feel like we want to give up. No matter what we face, God can give us the strength we need to keep going and finish what we started.
At dinner tonight, ask: What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever accomplished?
