What Jesus teaches about Perseverance


Everyone faces hardships and trials at different points in their life. Whether it’s the rigors of everyday work, personal financial crises, health problems or relationships that seem too complicated to mend, persevering against these pressures may sometimes feel daunting. However, as we journey together through this short Bible study, we will explore how Jesus teaches us about the immense power of perseverance.

Our Savior’s life was an embodiment of perseverance, sending us the message that persistence in the face of challenges can bring us closer to God’s purposes. Let’s journey deeper into this beautiful scriptural lesson and learn to transform our hurdles into stepping stones of faith.

Bible Verse

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9 (ESV)


The verse from Galatians illustrates how our lives of faith are like a farmer’s work—long, labor-intensive, and requiring immense patience. Just like a farmer waits for his crops to grow, we must wait for our faith to blossom in God’s divine timing, not ours. Jesus asks us to persevere in doing good, in loving others, in showing kindness, and in living out our faith, even when we visually can’t see the results.

By setting His own example, Jesus teaches us that perseverance isn’t merely about getting through the trials but it’s about the transformation that takes place within us while we’re persevering. Jesus transformed the cross, a tool of torture and humiliation, into the ultimate symbol of love and salvation. The cross reminds us that perseverance is never fruitless; it often produces outcomes far beyond what we initially imagined.

Actions to Take

  1. Practice daily affirmations of God’s promises. Remember His commitment to fulfill them in His own time, and hold firmly.
  2. Meditate on scriptures that encourage perseverance. This could be as simple as spending five minutes a day to absorb the truths they reveal.
  3. Take time each day to pray for God’s will to be done in your life and the courage to persevere no matter what.
  4. Show genuine kindness to others, even when it’s hard. Remember, you are sowing seeds that will surely reap a harvest of blessings.
