Theological Term of the Week: Perseverance

Theology-image

This week’s term: Perseverance – The responsibility and activity of the believer in which he continues in the basic direction of righteousness in spite of adversity. It is only made possible, and is always effected, by divine preservation, and yet is the believer’s responsibility. It is, therefore, never perfectly exercised, but will always, in some measure, be present in the true believer’s life.

Last week’s term:  Preservation – The work of God whereby He, by grace, controls and guides all circumstances around and within His elect, which results in their being unquestionably, and without exception, delivered unblamable into His everlasting kingdom. This  work is totally of God, always perfect, and never enhanced by human cooperation.
