What Jesus Did! 'Salvation In Spite of Hate' — Mark 13:13

Tuesday, September 24, 2024

[Jesus continued,] "And everyone will hate you because you are my followers. But the one who endures to the end will be saved."
— Mark 13:13 NLT

Key Thought

Even when our situation makes us feel like everyone is against us, we can endure ... we must endure ... we will endure. When we are faithful, when we endure, we can be certain that our future is with the Savior and great things await us at his return!

Today's Prayer

Give me strength, O Lord God Almighty, to endure faithfully to the end so I will find your glorious welcome into your eternal Kingdom of mercy, grace, and joy. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
