How good are you at sticking with things? In this seasons’ devotions we’re exploring how Jesus held on to his sense of purpose and calling, what kept him persevering amidst dissent and criticism, what kept his hope alive when things started going so badly and what kept him faithful right up to the cross. Tenacity can be loud or it can be quiet, but what really marks it out is how it lasts. Tenacity is the last man standing. It’s not something we can just drum up in ourselves by being stubborn, or really self-disciplined, because tenacity isn’t just about refusing to budge. It’s about holding on to something – or in our case, someone. It’s our ability to hold onto God, to who we know him to be, what we believe he has done and said. And when we can’t do that, to trust that he is still holding onto us. More than anything else, tenacity is an invitation to a long-term relationship, with all the inevitable ups and downs.
