In the beginning of this year, maybe most people make a good plan for this new year. However, even a good plan is useless without practice of it.
Moreover, continuous practice and endurance to accomplish a new plan is more important than making a plan.
Likewise, Endurance and steadiness are necessary virtues in our belief toward God. If we give up our faith because of other suffering and hardship, even though we might have kept a good faith so far, It would be useless and in vain.
Bible also says we have to have a endurance virtue to be saved in the last days.
12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.(Rev 14 : 12 NIV )
The above mentioned verse is about those who will be saved in the last days (Rev. 14 : 1~).
To belong to this group, we should run the race of faith to the end even slow with the faith about God the Father and God the Mother who are the Savior in this age.
Only those who endure present suffering could participate in the future glory in heaven with Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother.
17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Present Suffering and Future Glory
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.(Ro 8 : 17~)
