The above title may have prompted you to sing the next line in the old song, “I shall not be moved.” In this teaching we will look at what it means to persevere in our Christian walk, that is, simply to keep going, even if our pace varies. Like the seed that landed on good soil, you can be one “who, after hearing the Word, clings to it with an honest and good heart, and bears fruit with steadfast endurance.”
To do so, we must sink our spiritual roots deep enough to tap into God’s energy. Fruitful perseverance requires us to establish and maintain godly priorities. There are many battles we can fight, and we must choose wisely where we expend our energy.
