David Jeremiah 13 April 2022 Daily Devotional MESSAGE
It was the leadership of Winston Churchill that inspired the British people to repel Nazi Germany’s attempted takeover of the island nation. In the House of Commons in 1940 Churchill said, “We shall never surrender.” Sixteen months later, speaking to the students at Harrow School, his alma mater, Churchill said, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.”
Perseverance and commitment are among the most cherished of human values. And they have a role to play in the spiritual life. The apostle James wrote about never giving in to temptation, about persevering in the paths of righteousness—for which there will be a reward: “He will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” England’s reward for perseverance was freedom; the Christian’s reward is the crown of eternal life.
Never give in to the temptation to stop persevering—and the crown of life will be yours.
Today, let us rise and go to our work. Tomorrow, we shall rise and go to our reward.
