To illustrate the idea behind the word translated perseverance in 2 Thes 3:5, which is used in Step 3 of the lesson, “You can keep at it,” I plan to show a video clip of Eric Liddell from the movie Chariots of Fire. In scene 12, “The Bravest Victory”, another runner trips Liddell, who falls down. Instead of quitting the race, however, he gets up, takes out after the other runners (now, well ahead in the race), and overtakes them. He wins the race. He took a blow and kept going. That’s perseverance!

Under what circumstances in life have you had to keep going ("hang in there")?
