GO THE DISTANCE

“Those people who keep their faith until the end will be saved.” Matthew 24:13

Yahushua doesn’t say if you succeed you will be saved. Or if you come out on top you will be saved. He says if you endure. An accurate rendering would be, “If you hang in there until the end…if you go the distance.”

The Brazilians have a great phrase for this. In Portuguese, a person who has the ability to hang in and not give up has garra. Garra means “claws”. What imagery! A person with garra has claws that burrow into the side of the cliff and keep him from falling.

So do the saved. They may get close to the edge; they may even stumble and slide. But they will dig their nails into the rock of God and hang on.

Yahushua give you this assurance. Hang on. He’ll make sure you get home.

List some practical things you can do to “dig your nails into the rock of God”…

Today… take that proverbial deep breath, look honestly and introspectively within, and exhale all doubt and negativity OUT of your being… God is here. Listening? God is HERE. Right now. Within you. He permeates your very being. And, He is ALWAYS THERE!!!

Share this message with another human being today. Uplift, don’t demean. Encourage, don’t debase or speak poorly of. You are blessed. Bless another today. Hang in there… BE BLESSED.
