Persevere in Maturity

HAVE YOU ever had one of those days when you gave all that you had to give, and everything seemed to go wrong, so you felt like quitting?

Those serving in First Nations ministry, especially those who are active in promoting unity and maturity in Christ, can grow weary in running the race.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry, will persevere with courage and faith.

Ephesians 4:11-13 says “Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers, so that his people would learn to serve and his body would grow strong. This will continue until we are united by our faith and by our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be made mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him.”

Ask our Creator to encourage our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, as they lead others into maturity and unity of faith.

MORE ABOUT: Persevere in Maturity

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.


Colossians 4:12
