Stephen and Mephibosheth were marked by endurance and these two men are great examples for all believers today. Sometimes our hearts can be filled with worries and doubts on our Christian pathway but God is faithful. There is a way to endure by looking to our Lord Jesus Christ the author and completer of our faith. In this word, you will hear of Endurance as seen in Stephen and Mephibosheth.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation

Romans 15:4 “For as many things as have been written before have been written for our instruction, that through endurance and through encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.”

Acts 7:52-6052 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain those who announced beforehand concerning the coming of the Just One, of whom *ye* have now become deliverers up and murderers!53 who have received the law as ordained by [the] ministry of angels, and have not kept [it].

54 And hearing these things they were cut to the heart, and gnashed their teeth against him.55 But being full of [the] Holy Spirit, having fixed his eyes on heaven, he saw [the] glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God,56 and said, Lo, I behold the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing at the right hand of God.

57 And they cried out with a loud voice, and held their ears, and rushed upon him with one accord;58 and having cast [him] out of the city, they stoned [him]. And the witnesses laid aside their clothes at the feet of a young man called Saul.59 And they stoned Stephen, praying, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.60 And kneeling down, he cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And having said this, he fell asleep.”

1 John 5:10 He that believes on the Son of God has the witness in himself; he that does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the witness which God has witnessed concerning his Son.”

2 Samuel 19:24-3024 And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king. Now he had neither washed his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came [again] in peace.25 And as soon as Jerusalem came to meet the king, the king said to him, Why didst thou not go with me, Mephibosheth?

26 And he said, My lord, O king, my servant deceived me; for thy servant said, I will saddle me the ass, and ride thereon, and go with the king; for thy servant is lame.27 And he has slandered thy servant to my lord the king; but my lord the king is as an angel of God; do therefore what is good in thy sight.28 For all my father’s house were but dead men before my lord the king; and thou didst set thy servant among them that eat at thine own table. What further right therefore have I? and for what should I cry any more to the king?

29 And the king said to him, Why speakest thou any more of thy matters? I have said, Thou and Ziba divide the land.30 And Mephibosheth said to the king, Let him even take all, since my lord the king is come again in peace to his own house.”

Ephesians 1:20-2320 [in] which he wrought in the Christ [in] raising him from among [the] dead, and he set him down at his right hand in the heavenlies,21 above every principality, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name named, not only in this age, but also in that to come;

22 and has put all things under his feet, and gave him [to be] head over all things to the assembly,23 which is his body, the fulness of him who fills all in all:”

John 3:35-3635 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things [to be] in his hand.36 He that believes on the Son has life eternal, and he that is not subject to the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides upon him.”
