Be Determined to Stick to the Course

A. Keep your eyes on the prize...
1. Therefore...be determined to let go of anything that holds you back.
2. Be determined to run...not walk as you move forward.
3. Be determined to keep your eyes on Jesus.
“After much research, it turns out that across all ethnic, socio-economic, educational, and psychological demographics ‘one characteristic emerge[s] as a significant predictor of success… grit” (Duckworth).
Psychologist Angela Lee Duckworth has made grit the focus of years of study. She defines grit as ‘the ability to persevere in pursuing a future goal over a long period of time and not giving up… It is having stamina. It’s sticking with your future, day-in, day-out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years and working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.’”
1. Grit is endurance or steadfastness. Grit is the ability to stick to the course, despite obstacles.
2. Grit builds as you mature spiritually.
3. Grit grows through testing, trials, and difficulties.
C. Building grit in your life...
1. Grit is built when we learn to delay gratification.
“Forgoing present pleasure for long-term gain.” - Mark Moore
It simply means that a Christian is willing to give up something now to obtain a better reward in the future.
2. Grit is built when you "get over yourself". Do something for another who cannot pay you back. Listen for others!
D. So... be determined... stick to the course... and get gritty...
1. Look for examples who model endurance.
2. Learn to patiently wait on God.
3. Train yourself to look at trials from a different perspective.
4. Make every effort to strengthen your spiritual life by adding to your faith.
5. Don't get lost in your present struggle...it is minimal compared to all that awaits you!
6. Keep your eyes on the prize...it's worth it!
