Paul compared the Christian to a soldier aiming to please his commanding officer. He compared the saint to an athlete who must compete according to the rules. And he compared them to the hard-working farmer. Just like the farmer, if we are to reap an abundant harvest, then we must persevere through constant and grueling labor.
In this message, Pastor Ed helps us see what it will take to endure using Jesus’ teaching on the vine and the branches from John 15.
