Endurance/Patience/Perseverance

At Peace, we continue to explore the virtues listed in 2 Peter 1:3-11. Yesterday, I preached on ύπομοήν (hoop-o-mo-nay)–enduance, patience, perseverance, fortitude . . . It gets translated a lot of different ways. I’m having trouble choosing an excerpt from the sermon, but you can find the whole thing here.

I will simply leave you with a blessing from the sermon’s conclusion: When you are overwhelmed and exhausted, may you  rest in God’s grace and in the promise that God’s “divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness.” Amen
