“Then how should a Christian cultivate endurance? Here’s a few things you might want to consider.”
You’re always one crisis away from quitting your faith. So am I. That’s not false modesty, either.
Every Christian life has a lazy Susan in it—one of those little server wheels on top of the dinner table that rotates the mashed potatoes and pork chops, and dinner rolls to everybody. The one in your life rotates troubles in and out, each problem spiced with a special kind of pain. Go ahead and claim victory in the name of Christ. But for the most part, some of that stuff just sits there until you have to deal with it. Victory won’t come from pole-vaulting over it, but only from going through it.
