Life is rough. The Christian life may be even more difficult. There is this tension between our belief in a good God and all the rough things we experience.

For a person to spend their entire life as a faithful follower of Jesus, they need tenacity. It is defined as “determination” or “persistence.” One more picturesque explanation is that tenacity is to “grip something firmly.” To grab something, hold on tight, and never let it go.

Living for Jesus is like hopping on a bucking bull. A person will have to grab a hand full of Jesus, squeeze firmly, and hold on for dear life. 

I often think that those who will make it to heaven are not the smartest, the most gifted, or even those whose life is full of blessing. It is for the tenacious.
