Perseverance: the Latin foundation of the term defines it all. Per (through) plus severus (severe) equals “through the severe.”
When we go through challenges of various sorts in life and make it to the other side, we have persevered, having gone “through the severe.”
In James 5:10-11, the Scriptures point to the prophets and then to one person in specific who demonstrated perseverance. Both examples are there to encourage us to stand strong in our faith when the winds of adversity come our way.
Join us this coming Sunday as we learn from those examples that we can endure because of God’s compassion and care us along with His mercy. We meet at 9:30 am. at 740 N. 129th Street along the West Dodge corridor in Omaha, Nebraska. If you are uncomfortable in attending in person, check out our Facebook page, SpiritOfFaithOmaha, or our YouTube channel. Come grow with us as we seek to share the joy of knowing Jesus Christ.
