“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 6:10-12

TODAY’S WORD…

.

God is not unfair.

He will not forget the work you did or the love you showed for Him

in the help you gave and are still giving to other Christians.

.

Our great desire is that each of you keep up your eagerness to the end,

so that the things you hope for will come true.

We do not want you to become lazy,

but to be like those who believe and are patient,

and so receive what God has promised.

.

– Hebrews 6:10-12 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

It is not enough for us, individually, to have a history of being good and of doing good:

it is necessary that we persevere

in the way that we live

and in the good that we do,

right to the end.

.

It is by seeing through to the end what reflects our faith,

that we shall obtain everything we hope for;

everything the Lord has promised.

.

We must be firm in our love for the Lord and for our neighbour right to the end

because, as Jesus said, “the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” (Mt 10;22)

.

Eternal life is there for those who never stop hoping in God

and who persevere to the end.

.

However, we must always beware of the lethargy which can creep in

and which often hides behind the excuse

that being and doing good involves too much suffering and difficulties.

.

It is only through keeping our eyes on Jesus

and through a longing for the eternal life He promises us,

that we can carry on moving forward cheerfully and resolutely… to the end.

.

For those who truly believe,

there is no other goal which is more worthwhile!

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, help me keep my eyes on You

and protect my soul from lethargy and inconsistency.

Lord, I want to do Your will – always…and to the very end!
