August 13: Endurance

Scripture Lesson: Romans 15:4

On this date in 1950, in the bottom of the 22nd inning, with both starting pitchers still in the game, Don Richmond singled down the right field line, plating Dick Cole to give the Rochester Red Wings a 3-2 victory over the Jersey City Giants. Ptcher Tom Poholsky, after yielding two unearned runs in the top of the second, went on to pitch 20 consecutive scoreless innings for the complete game victory. Meanwhile, Giant pitcher Andy Tomasic also went the distance, giving up single runs in the first and second innings before losing the game in the bottom of the 22nd inning.

In today’s text, Paul was wrapping up his letter to the Romans and was showing them how to have hope. Paul said to have hope, we must have endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures. Endurance means to keep on keeping on, no matter what happens. The Christian life is not easy to live. It takes effort each and every day to withstand all that Satan throws at us. Nothing pleases Satan more than to cause us to fail and sin. It takes effort each day to beat him. We always have the hope and guidance that comes through the Bible to help us withstand what Satan throws at us. for us to live the Christian life to the fullest, we must have endurance to keep on keep on keeping on no matter what happens!

  1. Why is it important to have endurance in the Christian life?

  2. Where can we go to draw the strength and guidance we need to endure?

  3. Where does our hope come from to live for Him?

The Christian life is not a sprint, it is a marathon that takes endurance to complete as we live for Christ each day!
