Revelation 2:3 NIV
[3] You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
啟示錄‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
[3] 你能忍耐,曾為我的名勞苦而不困倦。

Grit is knowing the cost and the calling

Romans 8:18,28 NLT
[18] Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. [28] And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
羅馬書‬ ‭8:18, 28‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
[18] 我認為,現在的苦楚,若比起將來要顯示給我們的榮耀,是不足介意的。[28] 我們知道,萬事都互相效力,叫愛上帝的人得益處,就是按他旨意被召的人。

Grit is letting Gods grace do the heavy lifting

Psalm 56:3-4 NIV
[3] When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. [4] In God, whose word I praise---in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
詩篇‬ ‭56:3-4‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
[3] 我懼怕的時候要倚靠你。[4] 我倚靠上帝,我要讚美他的話語;我倚靠上帝,必不懼怕。血肉之軀能把我怎麼樣呢?

Grit is being full of the Spirit

2 Timothy 1:7 NIV
[7] For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
提摩太後書‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭RCUV‬‬
[7] 因為上帝賜給我們的不是膽怯的心,而是剛強、仁愛、自制的心。
