Pressing Through the Pain

Too many young Christians expect endurance to come quickly and easily.

We bought a trampoline this summer for the girls. I love it too. The first time I got on that thing I thought I would have a heart attack. I've been using my legs for 40 years, but they were on fire two minutes in! In just a few weeks I built up my endurance and could jump a half-hour.

I went to the beach and missed ten days or so playing with the girls on the trampoline. We got back and I jumped on it for five minutes and collapsed! It doesn't take long to get out of shape.

It doesn't take long spiritually either. When we don't continue to endure, we find ourselves weakened.
