God’s life-changing word overflows with his promises of real love, forgiveness, salvation, peace, hope, and joy for everyone who trusts in his Son, Jesus.
These three passages encourage followers of Christ to continue fearing God and recognize that trials to their faith produce endurance.
Do not envy sinners in your heart.
Instead, continue to fear the Lord.
There is indeed a future,
and your hope will never be cut off.
So don’t lose your confidence. It will bring you a great reward. You need endurance so that after you have done what God wants you to do, you can receive what he has promised.
My brothers and sisters, be very happy when you are tested in different ways. You know that such testing of your faith produces endurance.
