Thoughts on Stability, Part IV

In the end I am brought back, of course, to Christ himself and to his example, the willingness to endure faithfully and with patience, patientia, to remind me that this means both waiting and suffering.  What makes this possible?  The faithfulness of God.  God is faithful to the covenant, and I know I can rely on him...  My stability is possible in the end because of the certain, guaranteed, steadfastness of God.
