Genuine religion is shown by its power of persistence. (F. B. Meyer, late British author)

Religious practices, sects, and cults seem to come and go. Only a few have persisted over the years. One of the tests for the sincerity and value of attempts to reach and please God is the endurance of the practitioner. But that’s not enough in itself. Practice may make permanent, but it doesn’t guarantee the perfection God demands. That is to be found in the only way to Him.

Jesus: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me (John 14:6).
