Pete and Gladys were looking at a new living room suite in the furniture store. Pete said to the salesman, We really like it, but I dont think we can afford it.
The salesman said, You just make a small down payment ... then you dont make another payment for six months.
Gladys wheeled around with her hands on her hips and said, Who told you about us?
It shouldnt be surprising that what we find so difficult in so many areas of our lives should also be difficult in our Christian walk. Were tempted to simply quit. Thats why there are so many words of encouragement to hang in there when things get tough.
For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end. (Hebrews 3:14)
Dont just make the first payment. Remain steadfast to the very end!
