COT – Being a Steadfast and Resilient Man
Situations in life can be discouraging… weaker men may judge from the sidelines. God doesn’t call us to meek, He doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to be bold…. To be courageous… and builds us and crafts us during the most difficult of trials. God reminds us to be men who remain steadfast under trial.
James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you are involved in various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance and steadfastness. But you must let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.
The Man in the Arena
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
