The dictionary says that “staying power” is the ability to finish the job or to complete something that you undertake. If you are discouraged, hitting walls in your life that you can't get beyond, and tempted to quit, then staying power is extremely important. For those tempted to quit their marriage, coming to church, a friendship or even living, this message by Dr. Merritt offers encouragement through instructions and discussion from God's Word.

"Paul specifically says, 'Let us not become weary' or you could say 'Don’t lose heart.' It literally means to become so tired from working that you just give up. May I tell you something? Living is hard work. Building a good marriage and keeping it together is hard work. Being a good parent, maintaining a great relationship with your children is hard work. Getting up on Monday morning and getting to your job, many times, is hard work. Being a devoted follower of Jesus Christ is hard work. It is easy to get weary." --Dr. Merritt
