~Jesus, John 16:33~
Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given us.
~Romans 5:2-5 (Amp)~
…To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God…He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death…And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations…To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne…He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. ~Revelation 2:7,2:11,2:26,3:21,21:7
