Endurance (Staying Power)

Sep 5 2012

There is much to be said for endurance. Because God’s love endures, we are recipient’s of His immense blessing. Our passionate endurance will bring: stability, growth, excellence, wisdom and influence. As musicians in the House, how do we access this staying power?

Stay Passionately Devoted to Jesus, to His Church, and to our gifting:
As musicians in the House, we call people to a life lived before the Cross. Let’s stir up our passion for Jesus. He is our great reward!

HIS CHURCH – The local church is the expression of Christ’s love here on earth. We serve Jesus and minister to others by serving in our local church. “When they said. ‘Let’s go to the house of God,’ my heart leaped for joy.” (Ps 122:1)

OUR GIFTING – God gives each one of us something that we can excel in –something that has the potential for greatness! All it takes is time and diligence –a relentless pursuit of excellence. Matthew 25:29 says, “those who have will be given more, and they will have an abundance” (TNIV). If we take ownership of the gift God has given us, and increase and refine it, we will have an abundance. This abundance can be an overflow that pours blessing in to others: breaks chains, opens blind eyes, and brings freedom to captives.

There is much to be said for endurance.
